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:
World oceans day 8/6/2018
For World Oceans Day this year Eco Team lead some activities throughout the day to educate others about the dangers of plastic in ocean. We also held a Water Festival to engage children in the day. In our Water Festival we tried to save fish from plastic, reuse clothes to make a patch work blanket and we had activities that looked at the amount of water that goes into the production of different materials and food. We also raised £89 for Project Ocean.
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.
The Big pedal - Final Results
We all tried hard to join in this year's Big Pedal. We enjoyed getting on our bikes and scooters and enjoying the great weather we had. We were lucky to have Jo from the Sustains charity come in and deliver an assembly.
At the end of the two weeks we positioned:
For all schools taking part: 165/495
We are really proud of this as we are still a developing school. Imagine what we can achience once all classes are full!
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!
