Pre-loved clothes sale

 

The Eco warriors held their first pre-loved clothes sale today. Thank you to the parents who braved the rain to come and buy some uniform. We made £9 which is a good start. We will hold another sale next half term. 

Re-fillable glue sticks!

At Freemantle we are now using refillable glue sticks which means we no longer have to throw away any old used glue sticks. Unfortunately glue sticks are no recyclable so end up in landfill sites. The refills for our new refillable glue sticks come in cannisters which can easily be washed and re-used or sent back to Nexus (the company that make them) to be refilled again! Charlie from Nexus came to talk to the Eco warriors about the benefits of the glue sticks and discuss their ideas for re-using the glue cannisters. The children talked about using the cannisters to send messages, store sweets and build towers!

Plants!

As part of our School grounds topic the Eco warriors have been discussing the importance of trees and plants both indoor and outdoors. One member shared this idea for planting indoors. Maybe families would enjoy creating this at home....

 

How To Make a terrarium
 
  1. Fill the bottom of a glass jar or bottom of a plastic bottle with small pebbles—about 2–3 inches high.
  2. Fill it with potting soil about ¾ of the way up.
  3. Plant a couple of small indoor plants in the terrarium.
  4. Let your child fill their terrarium with special objects of their choice.

Action Plan!

The Eco warriors have worked hard to decide on what actions they would like to take to improve our three focus topics across the academy. Here is their action plan...

Eco warriors

An Eco warrior has been elected from each class, from year 1 to year 6. There first task was to carry out an Environmental  Review to find out what we are doing well as a school and areas we could improve. As a result of this audit we would like to share the following topics which we will be working on the academic year:

Waste

School Grounds

Marine
