🌳 Planting for a positive future! 🌳
As part of the Trees for Schools initiative we decided to plant our Silver Birch Tree in the P1 area- we needed Mr Boyds help with this one!
Time to Tidy! 👷♀️👷🏻♂️
Getting our wellies and old clothes on to help Mr Boyd and Mr Massey tidy up the Nursery outdoor area.
Now the children can enjoy outdoor learning in their new sand hut and dolls house. 🏠
Litter picking! 🗑🚯♻️
The Eco Warriors did a litter pick around the school. Unfortunately, we found more rubbish than we thought we would!
Thank you to Donaghadee Garden Centre who donated all of this bark for the Foundation Outdoor Play Area! ☺️
The Eco Warriors worked hard to weed the old bark and lay out the new bark or P1 & P2 to enjoy!
Our first Committee meeting! ✏️
We choose the 3 topics we want to focus on this year. Mr Boyd explained how we could help with the blue recycling bins in school!
We spent the first week at ECO warriors club tidying the foundation area. We did some weeding and planted daffodil bulbs. 🌼
🤩 ECO Committee 2021/22 🤩

WALK TO SCHOOL MONTH 👫
Let’s help reduce the congestion around school by walking to school.
The ECO council are running a competition in school for the class who can record the highest number of children walking to school each day.
Get moving, get involved!
World Ocean Day
In school we have been learning about the importance of recycling and reducing waste. There are 5 ways in the picture below in which you can help save the ocean 🌊 and the planet. 🌏
You may also find this Newsround video interesting. It reminds us of what plastic is and why we should try and reduce the amount that we are using.
Would you like a chance to win £100 for school?
BITC is asking kids to get creative and draw, paint or make a picture that show us ways that everyone can step up to protect the planet. Click on the link below to find out more-
Making Learning Greener!
Here are 30 days worth of activities for the Nursery and Foundation aged children to enjoy whilst out on their daily walk or in their garden! It is a strange time at the moment and these activities will allow the children to get out of the house and engage with nature!
Thank you to everyone who made Ditch the Dark Day such a success! We had so much fun wearing a variety of brightly coloured clothing. Throughout the day we enjoyed doing ECO related activities, we also had a visit from the Recycling Bus and Christian Aid.
