Term 5

 

During Term 5 Class 2 have been looking at Oceans and, as part of a homework project, they produced posters to highlight the problem of pollution.

Thank you Class 2, these posters are now displayed around the school and we are very supportive of the messages they convey.

A sample of these poster are on the slide show below...

Term 4

Term 4 has been very exciting for both the Eco-Council and School Council. At the end of Term 3, we had been invited to take part in the local planting of an avenue of trees to commemorate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee but the plans did not come to fruition! Consequently, the children took matters into their own hands and have planted their own trees in our school grounds!

 

The Class 6 representatives from School Council and Eco-Council planted an apple tree in our vegetable garden.

 

All children had great fun digging a hole, preparing the soil and planting oak saplings around the school boundary.

 

All children gleefully planted strawberry plants, kindly donated by Mr Meyer. We are hoping for a bumper strawberry harvest to accompany our cream tea to celebrate The Queen’s 70 year reign.

Term 3

 

When we met this term, Eco-Council were very concerned about the amount of litter they see on the way to school so we decided to undertake a litter pick through the woods and in to the church car park. Very limited litter was found in the woods but we were sad to find a lot of litter in the church car park; black sacks were filled! 

Good work, Eco-Council.

Term 2

 

It was with gusto that the Eco-council met this term. Fired up by the lack of ability to re-cycle paper due to the council putting all our waste into one lorry, we wrote a letter to our MP and Swale Council requesting recycle collection from our school.

The children were also very inspired by our STEM week in school and particularly influenced by Mrs Blair's presentation, discussion and tasks focusing on climate change, recycling and environmental issues. As a result, the Eco-Council decided to recycle the egg boxes that were collected in that week (for a STEM activity) and build a castle out of them! Little Hedgehogs were the excited recipients of the new build ... 

It's up to us

Sheldwich Primary School are the proud recipients of a book commissioned by The Prince of Wales. Each page is beautifully illustrated by a current artist demonstrating the wonderful but fragile world that we live in. The Eco-Council representatives showed their class book to their peers during STEM week.

2021

Term 1

Eco-Council meeting

 

It was with great pleasure that I met with the Eco-Council representatives to talk about ideas that they would like to focus on this year. They were full of wonderful ideas about how we could help raise awareness of the importance of looking after the world in which we live. Indeed, many of their suggestions were the same and overlapped each other yes

Their ideas and suggestions have formed an action plan for the year ahead:

 

* Make bug hotels to promote caring for the environment

* Support Hedgehogs being cared for in our environment
* Promote recycling in school
* Litter pick around Sheldwich
* Research how we can help the bees

 

 

I am looking forward to working with such a committed and inspirational Eco-Council.
