Eco Schools

We have used some milk containers to plant flowers and brighten up our school garden

Planting some trees in our school garden

Our homemade birdfeeders are in the trees all round school. We look after the birds in winter. 
Our clean up crew have been busy picking up litter.

Litter... don't drop it...stop it.

The P1s made bird feeders from suet and seeds. Yummy.
2A and 2C have been making cereal birdfeeders.
We needed to tidy the garden so Class 2A set to work. They found a few surprises.
Say hello to our Eco Committee for this year.

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved our Eco-Schools Green Flag award. 

Look at all our recycling! We took part in Wrigley's Litter Less Campaign.

We put our rubbish in the bin.

Thanks to everyone who supported our Cash for Clobber event.

We made bird feeders.

Some of our school was looking a bit messy!

We decided to make an eco garden for everyone to enjoy.

This is a place for the wild flowers to grow.
The big tractor tyres are recycled as planters.

Now for the soil.

The gardeners gave us lots of soil.

One of our neighbours gave us a compost bin. Now we can recycle our fruit and shredded paper to make our own soil.

We used some of our bulbs while the other seeds are growing.

Don't the daffodils look beautiful?

We love to recycle!

We use our milk cartons as pots.
The seeds are starting to grow.
Recycled bottles make good planters.
Our old book box is full of herbs.
We collect rainwater for our plants.
Our greenhouse helps the seeds grow faster.

Class 1c planted peas and beans.

Our seeds are growing......
...bigger.....
...and bigger.......
...and BIGGER.
Time to plant out the little seedlings.
They need lots of water.
The watering can is very heavy.

We want everyone to enjoy our garden.
