Last term,we carried out a waste audit to control the amount of waste our school is producing.We found that we have a bit of trouble knowing where to put items that you want to bin. For example,we found a lot of one sided paper in the wrong bin, instead of being reused.We also found that teachers really need a food bin (for their mouldy baked bean tins that should have been washed out).Many pens had dried up and were thrown away, mainly as their lids were lost.
 
 
 Some of our conclusions were that posters should be put up to remind us which things are recyclable and which things are not.We found our school needs a reminder of where to dispose of items. We also decided that we should have an assembly discussing our recycling habits.During the assembly, we will launch a competition of which further details will be released later on in the half term.Image result for what can be recycled

 

In all the excitement of Christmas and the new year, it can sometimes be hard to remember all about being eco-friendly and saving the world and you may need a little reminder of how to save the world at Christmas.So here we have the Christmas addition of "where can you bin it?- the show that no one wants but everyone needs" Take it away, Ricky!
Competitions
 
Currently, we have two competitions to enter and possibly win! As well as a batteries competition, we are asking you to design a poster advertising where items can be disposed of for attachment to recycling bins in classes. If you win, your poster will go on every bin-even the staffroom bin! Two runners-up will have their poster displayed around the school to a maximum of 3 copies each. You must enter independently,with the exception of asking adults to write important information (asking adults to do this is optional). One entry per child, drawn on an A4 sheet of paper with details (see below) can be handed to Miss Quinn,eco- warriors or your class teacher if you can't find one of us.The deadline is 1st March.
