Eco Warriors

Eco Warriors 2017/18 

Over the coming weeks, our Eco Warriors will be working with Mrs Bell looking at ways that we can improve recycling, litter and the habitat for wildlife within our school grounds. 

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.

As a school, we look after our environment and are constantly finding ways to try and improve it for our wildlife and for us. A child from each class was chosen and since then our Eco Warriors have been hammering away making  improvements around the school. 

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

At the end of the summer, our Eco Warriors were busy picking apples from the many fruit trees in our school grounds. We had an abundance of apples and rather than them going to waste, the apples were divided 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 also been outside in the school garden, tidying up and weeding the planters ready for Spring, when they will be planting vegetables.
