The Green Team
The Green Team meet with Mrs Hallett and take an active interest in how eco-friendly our school is. They have monitored energy use and been very pro-active in reminding us all to switch off lights and projectors when they are not needed! They have investigated waste and are ambassadors for re-cycling.
The Team also take an interest in creating an eco-friendly outdoor environment and are now involved with Devon Wildlife Trust and the Devonshire Place Residents' Association.
The Green Team have been making posters to encourage people to take care of our world. We have been thinking of creative ways to convince people to be kind to the world.
Parent support has been a vital part of our development of the school grounds. Opportunities have included: developing wildlife areas, a blind walk, an orchard, a sensory garden and an allotment.
News from the outdoors
A big thank you to the parents and staff who have helped us to make a start on the pond.
We have removed the old liner and emptied out the mud.
We have fitted an underliner and new pond liner and replaced a small amount of mud to tempt the frogs and newts back.
Luckily the recent rain is beginnng to fill the pond and we are hoping that the frogs and newts will breed.
In March our community gardeners worked on enlarging the allotment for new raised beds and weeded the keyhole garden and planted the bean plants grown by year 1.
