Modeshift Stars

great_news We have successfully achieved our Bronze level Modeshift STARS accreditation, a scheme established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. Schools across the country are encouraged to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people. We look forward to the presentation of our star and plaque next term.

Clean Air Day

On June 15th we supported the East Herts Council Anti-idling Awareness campaign- ‘Turn your key- be idle free’ to coincide with the National Clean Air Day. Studies show that air pollution can slow down the development of children’s lungs leading to lifelong consequences.

The children created posters to show their messages.

The Energy Eagles

energy_eagle Throughout the year our Energy Eagles checked energy efficiency each week (i.e. they checked that lights, taps and whiteboards were turned off) and reported back each Friday in assembly.

Sunflowers

The sunflowers the children planted in the allotment have grown very tall. The bees collect pollen during the summer months and when the flowers die the seeds will be used to make bird food.

Let's Get Wild In June

As part of 'Let's Get Wild in June' the Eco Council tidied up the Wildlife area and scattered seed bombs. Year 2 went to the allotment and helped keep the area tidy. Year 3 went pond dipping in the wildlife area. Year 4 carried out a tree study. Year 6 sketched their surroundings and observed the creatures living in our pond. Children form various classes searched the field for mini wildlife and also took photographs of our surrounding scenery.
The Eco Council then led a presentation to the school to summarise the events that took place to promote celebrating wild life over the summer holidays.
