Switch Off Fortnight

Next week is the start of switch off fortnight. We are doing lots of things in school to save energy. What are you doing to save energy at home? Let the Eco club know by commenting below.

Keep your class free from paw prints by switching the lights off and computers if they are not being used. Remember we will be checking!

Which class is going to be the best at saving energy?

Well done!

Up cycling Competition Winners

Well done to everyone that entered the competition.

It was very hard to choose the winners.


Upcycling Competition March 2017






Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. It is great for the environment because it prevents something from being thrown away by giving it a new purpose.

On Wednesday 8th March, the Eco Team will judge entries to a competition to make something useful or decorative from something else that is no longer needed. They will be looking for creative, interesting or original work, done by children.

There will be prizes for Early Years, KS1, lower KS2 and upper KS2. Entries must be brought into school by 9:00am Wednesday 8th March, labelled with name and class.

Switch Off Fortnight

From 21st November, we will be starting the Eco School’s Switch Off Fortnight.

The Eco team will be coming around school to check which classes are Eco Warriors and which are Energy Monsters. Help your teacher remember to switch off smart boards, computers, iPads, lights and other electrical devices. Nobody wants to find a black footprint from Carbon the Dog do they?

Let’s see which class gets Carbon’s certificate.

Post a comment here to tell everyone what you are doing at school and home to save energy…..remember it’s not just electricity you save, it’s money too!!!
