Eco-Schools

Hello, we are the Eco-Schools group.

Eco-schools group meet every Friday from 12:30pm to 1:00pm in the after school club room. Every class from Year 1 to Year 6 is represented by 2 children.

This year the group have been making posters about saving electricity, we looked at healthy eating and made healthy flap jacks. Some members wrote to the school dinner staff to ask about the quality of the food that they cook and whether the meat was free range and how healthy the chips were.

Since November we have been making a film about how we can save water, electricity and prevent germs spreading by washing your hands.

What could you do to help save energy?
