Eco Warriors

Last year, Mrs Bell told the children about a new and exciting award which the school is going to be working towards. The Eco School Award! In September of this year, we were notified that we had received the Bronze award for working towards a sustainable lifestyle. A big well done to Mrs Bell and her Eco Warriors and

 

to all the school who supported them so that we could achieve this award.




As a school we look after our environment and are constantly finding ways to try and improve it for our wildlife and for us. However, there is much more that we can do. A team of Eco Warriors has been chosen to help lead this project. A child from each class was chosen and since then they have been hammering away with making some improvements. 

Our first project was to improve the environment for birds and bats and last years Eco Warriors got busy building bat and bird boxes.  With the help of Mr Bell (Mrs Bells husband) these boxes have now been placed in trees around the school. 

Before last half term, our new Eco Warriors were busy picking apples from our many fruit trees in our school grounds. This year we had an abundance of apples and rather than them going to waste, these apples were all bagged up and each child sent home with a bag. The 'Deepcar Bake Off' began. We loved receiving pictures via our Facebook page of all the wonderful baking creations children and their parents had made at home during half term. 

Our Eco Warriors have recently been outside in the school garden, tidying up and weeding the planters ready for Spring, when they will be planting vegetables.
