The 2017/18 Eco Council

Downton Green Group invited the Eco-Council to present a display of their work on Seedy Sunday (8-4-18).  Even Speedy Gonzales came to have a look!

Year 5 just got on with the job of planting potatoes despite the wet weather!

Eco Council  REDUCE/RE-USE/RECYCLE

We have members from KS1 and KS2 and we have regular meetings to talk all things Eco.

Once again we are focusing on reducing our carbon footprint. Great fun was had on "Switch it Off Day".  Learning without electricity made us move to lighter locations in school, ensure all the blinds were drawn and shut the doors to keep out the cold!  Year 4 have been checking whether everyone has remembered to carry on “switching off”! 

We're still  focusing on using less paper.  We  hold a competition every term to see which class throws away the least amount of paper.  The class that wins  receives a trophy and the class that makes the most improvement in reducing paper waste will receive a certificate.  We will hold the competition fortnightly!   

Congratulations go to Year 4 won the competition in Term 3 and Year 3F in Term 4 for wasting the least amount of paper!

 

 We have begun collecting plastic pens for recycling but we are no longer collecting shampoo bottles because they can be recycled with the household recycling.
