Year 1 LItter picking around the school grounds

Tuesday 18th May 2021

Today the children got busy with litter picking around the school grounds. We talked about how important it is to keep our world litter free. Did you know that every year 2 million items of litter are dropped on our beaches, fields, towns and roadsides, spoiling our landscape, harming our wildlife and threatening our planet? So, armed with their litter pickers the ‘Green Team’ found all sorts of bits of rubbish. There were plenty of elastic hair bands collected this time! Our aim was to try and recycle as much as we could, create a better environment and make a difference.

This week, the Year 2 Eco Club members had a very important task to do. At Wescott, we are beginning the quest to achieve the Eco-Schools Bronze Award. During the session, the children helped to complete an environmental review. This will help us to choose our 3 topics which our school can then focus on. We looked at various environmental issues such as energy, biodiversity, litter, transport, healthy living and waste. The children did an amazing job at helping to recognise what our school is good at doing and helped make suggestions on how we can improve. As ever, the children were enthusiastic, curious, great communicators and very keen to make a difference. Great work green team!

In today's session we discussed ways to encourage wild life such as bees, butterflies and other animals into our gardens. The children planted their own sunflower in a pot to take home and look after.
