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.

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.
