Eco School and Warriors
A half term challenge was set for our children and look at these fantastic entries.
The children had an inspiring assembly today from the charity Kids Against Plastic. The charity is hoping all schools in Leicester will become plastic clever school to reduce the impact of plastic on the environment.
The children learned facts such as:
Every second breath we take come from the ocean in terms of the amount of oxygen given off by marine plants.
In less than 30 years scientists predict that there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish.
The average time we use a single use plastic for is 3 minutes but they take hundreds of years to break down.
Kids Against Plastic was founded by Amy when she was 12 years old, at 18 she is working harder than ever to spread the message about what we need to do now to save our oceans and last week she was at Buckingham Palace to collect
Our Eco committee is going to look at how we can reduce single use plastics in our school; namely reducing the amount of plastic bags, bottles, straws and cups we use. We hope all our school community will support us in this.
School Fair May 2022
The Eco Warriors will have a stall where you will be able to buy eco-friendly plants/pots and seeds. You will even have the opportunity to muck in and get stuck in –make your very own eco pots for a small charge! Be sure to check out our stall and help make difference to our planet!
The Eco Warriors led their first school litter pick with
a tremendous number of helpers from all over school! We started off in the main playground, making our way to the ‘green area’ and to the football court. It was quite shocking the types of things we found! Lots of wrappers, tissues and even plastic! The Eco team will be conducting more litter picks and they will be monitoring and measuring the outcomes of each one. We are hopeful we can reduce our litter-especially plastic! If you are feeling inspired and want to make a difference to our community-our world, join us on: Wednesday 8th June 2022 from 9.00am-10.00am: Community Litter Pick.
As part of World Environment Day 2022, the children were introduced to the Biodiversity Challenge for primary schools. We cannot wait to see the ideas the children come up with.
