WE ARE CHESHAM'S ECO WARRIORS!

 

                                                                            

We are proud to play our part in being a 'Green Flag Eco-School'!

May 2018 - we won our 2nd Green Flag School award!

Who are the Eco Warriors? We are volunteers from classes throughout the school who have an interest in healthy lifestyles, ecology and our environment, both inside and outside school. We all meet at our after-school 'Eco Club' which takes place on Tuesdays from 3.30- 4.30.

"I like being an Eco Warrior because I like seeing our glorious environment at peace. People don't realise we could lose it all if we don't take care of it. I like adding to our environment with flowers of beauty to feed our local wildlife. Everyone can be an Eco Warrior - all it takes is being eco-friendly!"  Rebecca, Class 8

"I joined Eco Club because you get to make energy posters to remind people to switch off the lights." Gracie, Class 4

"I like doing the Eco Watch at dinnertime." Haaris, Class 4

"I really like planting the bulbs outside, around school." Lia, Class 4

"I like being an Eco Warrior because you get to wear a badge!" James, Class 4

The Eco Warrior’s Summer 2018 Newsletter

Welcome to Eco Club!

This is our newsletter to keep you updated with the many exciting plans and activities we are involved in.

Here is what we have done so far:

  • Planted even more bulbs around the school grounds for a beautiful spring display.
  • Signed up for ‘Switch off fortnight’ & ‘Waste Week’.
  • Started ‘Fruity Fridays' each week to use up all our weekly fruit tuck left over.
  • Planted a range of vegetables in our raised beds.
  • Created Save Energy / Save Water posters for school display.
  • Planted bulbs in our local community park for residents.
  • Planted summer flowers in tubs and baskets around the school grounds.
  • Completed a number of litter picks.
  • Arranged a ‘@Bags2School’ event to recycle clothing.
  • Encouraged KS2 in our daily mile challenge.

What we are planning to do this term:

  •  Complete our Green Flag Renewal!!
  • Continue to encourage pupils to have a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy lunches and fruit snacks.
  • Survey our energy usage after our focus to reduce our carbon footprint by ‘switching off.’
  • Continue to use ‘energy monitors’ to encourage continued eco-friendly attitudes.
  • Tidy all raised beds from our summer planting.
  • Organise a Summer Fair stall
  • Tend to our vegetable patch.

Watch out for all these exciting events taking place in school and tell us what you think!  Please share any ideas you may have by putting them in our ‘ideas’ envelope.

NEW THIS TERM! 'FRUITY FRIDAYS' where we sell fruit left over from the week to save it from going to waste.
