Greta Thunberg - No One is too Small to Make a Difference

Our Eco Council have used the new iPads to find out how many single use plastic straws are used every day in the UK... it's a lot!

Waste Week 2019


The theme for 2019 is plastic waste! 


We thought about the different ways we could reduce the amount of plastic we use...


We could do this by: 

- Using reusable bags when we go shopping. 

- Say no to plastic straws!

- Stop buying bottled water. 

- Buy boxes instead of bottles.

- Reuse containers for storing leftovers. 




Switch Off Fortnight!


Eco Council's next mission is to help us to save energy both in the home and in the school to help prevent global warming. Global warming is the cause of the polar ice caps melting- causing flooding, and the cause of extreme weather conditions.


We can help by changing certain things:


Turning off the lights when no one is in the room

 Turning appliances off stand by mode which wastes electricity


To help promote this at home and in school, children have been asked to design a poster promoting saving energy.

Our new ECO Council will be meeting soon to begin their ECO work in school .. if you have any ideas please let your class representatives know!
