Our Eco-Team is a relatively new group of children who volunteered themselves for the role. We meet weekly on a Wednesday lunchtime and it is overseen by Hannah Gully and Lindsay Monk. Since starting the team, we have conducted an Environmental Review, which has highlighted the three areas within school that we need to focus on. These are:
- School grounds
We have also made and designed our Eco-Team Code of Conduct.
We have made an Eco-Team display for the school, which is in the main Reception area.
We have also delivered our own assemblies to let them know who we are and what we do.
We have another planned soon to let the school know what we need to do in order to improve the three areas listed above.
Meet the Eco-Team:
Going for green
At Redfield, we are trying to achieve the Green Eco award. These are all the things we need to ensure we cover in school to achieve this.
Eco Team bake sale
The Eco Team had their first Bake Sale to raise money to spend on developing the school grounds. They raised £100, thank you to all of you who bought cakes!
The Big pedal 2018
This year we are participating in Sustran's Big Pedal. It starts on Monday 23rd April and will finish on Friday 4th May. The Eco-Team planned and delivered an assembly to the whole school to promote the challenge. The aim is to try and get at least 15% of the school cycling or scooting to school. The Big Pedal aims to encourage more families to leave the cars behind and duct of the books and scooters. Here are some pictures of our assembly and the display that we will track our progress on.
