12-16th March is our annual Walk to School Week. Get some fresh air, improve your fitness and help the planet by walking as much as possible. If you travel by car perhaps you could park a little further away than usual.

The Eco Team have begun to make a new bug hotel by the stone circle. We hope it will encourage mini beasts to live in our school grounds.

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 enjoyed developing our new gardening area...........

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.
