Our mission to make our school as 'green as possible'!
We look out for things that we can do better to help protect our planet and then work hard to try and sort them out.
We met to discuss using our Y4 outdoor area as a vegetable patch. The area is currently over run by weeds and old plant roots. We think this would be better to be used for growing vegetables and fruits. We were very excited by this. We have asked our forest school leaders to try and clear this area so we can start planting in the Spring.
Tragedy struck! We noticed that the company that provided us we our dinners (which are very tasty) have started using plastic knives, forks and spoons and disposable cartoons. We normally use metal cutlery and plastic plates to try and reduce waste. These then get washed and there is only food waste. So, to help solve this, we wrote a letter to the company asking them to change back to using our re-useable ones. Thankfully they listened and we now don't have as much waste!
