Eco Club has been busy making bird feeders to hang in the playground. Birds can find it difficult to get enough food during the winter, and by hanging bird feeders we also encourage birds to visit our playground. Here are some photos of us hard at work...and having fun!

 

As a school we have been trying to promote 'being healthy'. All children are encouraged to bring one of their '5 a day' to eat at snack time. All classes have heathly eating reward charts. Eco-club members have been recording how many children in their class are eating fruit or vegtables at snack time so we can see which class have the most healthy eaters.  

 We have a waste paper policy for teachers and all classes have a scrap paper draw. Each classroom has a blue recycling bin and eco members are responsible for making sure that the correct items are recycled.
