Welcome to our Eco Warrior page!
Don't forget to save your empty crisp packets because we are recycling them at school. All crisp brands are accepted. The collection box is outside Y3.
This week is Walk to School Week. Leaving the car at home means less pollution for our environment. The class with the most children walking to school will win 10 marbles!
It was great to see so many children walking today. We’re off to a great start!
Mr Barr is a star! He regularly cycles to and from school.
If you live far away you can park and stride, park a little further away from school and walk the remainder of the way.
Litter picking in our local community
Any litter removed from a natural ecosystem helps wildlife and creates a better space for humans too! Mammals (like hedgehogs) and birds (like swans) frequently suffer injuries as a result of getting caught up in waste.
At our weekly meeting today we discussed the health and safety risks of the task at hand; then Dio made a Braveheart style speech to motivate everyone!
The Eco Warriors visited Perry Common Library and worked hard to collect and organise the litter. We placed the glass, plastic and cans in separate bags so that they can now be recycled.
We pushed back fallen leaves and needles, to give new plants and trees more space to grow and thrive.
Remembering to recycle - Well done Y1!
Recycling and reusing
Staff have managed to acquire some wooden pallets that can now be made into something new for our school. Come back to our page in few weeks, to see what happens to them!
We could do cheddar!
We are collecting crisp packets to recycle and working hard on reinstating our paper recycling collection. In our weekly meetings we have voiced how important we feel recycling is, so what else can we recycle?
Miss Jenkins thinks it would be brie-lliant if we recycled cheese packaging!
We all know she could probably fill the box with her cheese packets alone!
Miss Jenkins submitted the application forms this week. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we get accepted by TerraCycle, as a drop off location. If we succeed, our wider community will be able to bring their cheese packaging to school to be recycled.

A message from the Eco Warriors...
Eco Warrior products are now available to purchase in the staff room. Any money raised will fund future projects in school & the local area. We have items made from bamboo this week. Bamboo is hardy, easily maintained and grows quickly, making it a good alternative to plastic. However any old, unwanted, plastic toothbrushes can be reused as cleaning brushes.
We have been busy collating our ideas and also using our muscles! Miss Jenkins was able to find & save some laminate flooring that someone was going to throw away. Eco Warriors are going to reuse it, rather than dispose of it. EYFS will repurpose it and use it as a road for their toy cars, in their outdoor learning area.
