We have some new additions to our school. Eleven silly scarecrows! Each class has made one and they will help to keep the birds away from our vegetable crops.

This year's vegetable crop is beginning to grow nicely thanks to the recent sun and rain.

We have taken part in 'Clean for the Queen' to help celebrate her 90th birthday. We removed lots of litter from the woods. Now you can see the bluebells and other spring flowers much better.

Eco Week taught us a lot about how to care for our amazing planet.......

We compost our daily fruit waste. We have three large compost bins, and 2 wormeries full of hundreds of hungry worms.

We have visited Global Renewables at Farington. Here we saw what happens to our household rubbish and learnt it is better to reuse, reduce and recycle rather than adding to landfill.

Each class enjoyed making a story character scarecrow to keep the birds away from our crops.

We have an annual textile collection to prevent our old clothing going to landfill. It helps raise money for school resources too.
