Meet our Eco Group

Hello we are the ECO GROUP

The school council and eco group received a cheque for £100 from local charity Harp of Gold. This money will be used towards the Key Stage 2 garden.

 

Design and make a bee home competition

Did you know that our bee population is in danger? Bees are the most important insects of all and we need them to help pollinate our fruit and flowers.

The Eco Group have decided to help our local bees and in March we held a competition to make a bee house to put up around the school. Any media could be used, but of course, recycled or reclaimed is the best.

We were overwhelmed with the wonderful entries. Well done to everyone who had fun creating a bee house, we have put them up around school and in the garden and they will be perfect to attract those helpful bees. A prize was awarded to our favourite in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Congratulations to Annie, Ginny and Freddie!

 

Litter pick

On Friday 3rd March, the Eco Group went on a litter pick around Audley. They walked from school up to the library in the village picking up all the litter they spotted on the way.

Matilda, a member of the Eco Group said she was disgusted to see so much litter. She went on to say that it’s so easy to put your litter in the bin and wishes that more people could help keep the streets clean by holding onto their litter till they see a bin. Even better, if it happens to be something that can be recycled, it should be put into the correct recycling bin. Litter is damaging, it can hurt or even kill an animal.

They carefully collected five big bags of rubbish which included cigarettes, drinks cans, tin foil and sweet wrappers. The children really enjoyed it and local residents commented on what a wonderful job they were doing for their community.
