We have an Eco Team at school, two children from every class attend the meetings. During the meetings we discuss ways we can be more eco friendly in our school. At the moment Year 5 are working in the school garden, we are learning about composting and growing our own vegetables and herbs. You can find more information about the eco-team on our display board in the upper key stage two cloak room. We also have a suggestion box outside the Year 5 classroom.
