Some of the Eco warriors were lucky enough to attend Spuce up Shotton planting activity on Monday . We met Chris , who works for the County council, we then planted some flowers and herbs in pots . We then had our photos taken and even met a bear! We managed to get back to school just before the rain came. We are lucky enough to have the pots brought back to school , where they are now sat in our Peace garden. Well done Eco warriors .
A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the Great Battery Hunt . We have managed to collect over 1100 batteries ! Fantastic . The school has now been entered into a national competition - where we could be in with a chance of winning a cash prize , new iPads and much more.
The classes which collected the most were ,
3rd place - Class 3s with 364 batteries
2nd place - Class 40 with 507
and the winners were
1st place - 5C with a massive 598 batteries! Congratulations!
The School Council children and their parents were invited into school today to try some of Taylor Shaw's new food menu. We were able to try some pizza, strawberry cheesecake , turkey breast with bbq sauce and some delicious homemade bread .
The overall feedback was that it was very nice and that some of the children would certainly try new things on the menu .
It's lovely to see how our peace garden is changing. Thank you to Mr Cowie for helping to move all the cut down bushes and trees. A huge thank you to Mr Winward for coming in over the Easter holidays and chopping them down. Thank you to Mrs Kelly for donating paint and painting during her lunch break with children. A massive thank you to Keith Middleton, the school’s lollipop man, for donating vegetables to plant in our raised beds and for all of his advice.
Our Eco Warriors had a hard time choosing the winners for our Mini beasts and Bird feeders competition . They were all fantastic. It was clear to see that a lot of time and thought had gone into making them. A HUGE thank you to everyone who entered . The bird feeders and mini beasts homes will be placed in our Peace Garden as soon as the weather has started to improve . We will also be placing a couple of the bird feeders in our Forest schools area, where I'm sure everyone will be able to enjoy them .
Eco Team Meeting on Wednesday 10th January
This term, the Eco warriors are aiming to raise funds to transform the Peace Garden. During our meeting, we discussed ideas for fundraising and ideas for improving the garden. The team really feel that they want to involve the community, friends and family, in this and welcome any ideas, voluntary time or plants and flowers towards this exciting project. Further details of fundraising to be released shortly.
