 A new year
In the upcoming academic year, we look forward to focussing on climate change and waste in the first two terms, followed by our natural environment and the quiet and wild gardens in the summer.We are kicking this off with an assembly by four incredibly passionate honnary eco-warriors on the dangers of climate change and the importance of our wonderful world.
Notices:
 
 This year, we appointed new eco- warriors , who will lead our school saving the Earth. If you do not know who your eco- warriors are, please ask your class teacher so you know who to ask if you have any questions.
Environment matters
 
Christmas is coming! It is less than a month until 
Christmas(precisely https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/christmas) and we are all ready for a little bit of festive fun.However, that doesn't mean that climate change rests as well.Every week we will bring you two more tips on how to tackle it...whilst still having fun.And here they are...the keys to future White Christmases!
 
Tips from w/c 2/12
1.Try to re-use tinsel- however fun, it is not very environmentally friendly so try not to buy more than you already have.
 
2. When buying seasonal veg, always try to buy from locally grown places- flying them over to England from places like India uses a lot of energy.
 
Tips from w/c 9/12
1. Whilst crackers are fun, they are not always recyclable so try to make homemade ones ( don't worry- they aren't completely home made!). These come in flat packets with recyclable outside, ribbon and snaps in Paperchase.
 
2.Try to use reusable advent calendars made of felt- sometimes single use ones aren't recyclable.
 
Tip history:

1.Use recyclable gift wrap , available at Sainsbury's and M&S as,due to lamination, gold foil, glitter, and other decorative flourishes, most gift wrap is actually pretty harmful to our environment.
2.Turn down your heating by 1 degree celcius and you can save lots of otherwise wasted energy.Wrapping up a bit more inside really does make a whole lot of difference.
