Have a look at what eco-council have done in school so far...
Children at Woolaston Primary School shared soup made with vegetables grown in the school garden with members of WAGS, the village gardening club, on 2nd October.
'Waste Week' 5th-9th March 2018. Eco-council went around Woolaston during their lunch break to pick up litter.
Eco-council achieved their Bronze Award at the beginning of March for all of their effort and hard work this far. They are now working towards their Silver Award so watch this space!
We were visited by Severn Trent Water to do a whole school assembly about how to use water efficiently.
We have sent an email to all teachers to encourage them to turn off their lights and projectors when they are not using their classroom. This will help us to save energy.
On average, we drink 168 small plastic bottles of milk in school per week. That’s 6384 per year! Eco-Council have now made sure that each class recycles their bottles, and all the lids are collected to raise money for the Cat Protection Charity.
We were visited by Gloucestershire Fire Service to talk to us about how to stay safe on bonfire night. Chris the firefighter then went with eco-council to look at the school grounds and discuss where and how we could create a fire pit in school.
Gardening Club have been busy making bird feeders for the school garden using flower pots, sticks, lard and bird food. They also filled little cages with materials for nest building.
Eco-Council helped to deliver an assembly to the whole school about Waste. We discussed that 'Waste Month' was coming up and that we would all be taking part in activities in the classroom related to reducing waste.
Eco-Council spent their lunch times collecting litter around Woolaston during March. Instead of taking part in 'Waste Week' they extended this for the whole month of March. They collected two bin bags full of litter!
Phoenix, Atlantis and Apollo Class all took part in the Big Schools' Birdwatch this year.
Each class has completed work related to plastic waste during our 'Waste Month'. Here is a selection of what they produced.
The amazing Eco-Council children achieved their Silver Award this June. Next stop... The Green Flag Award!
