The children have thoroughly enjoyed an Eco Week this week, learning how to look after our environment. The week was launched through an assembly led by two year 6 children.
Many class activities had this theme this week and, in addition to this, we have had several visitors across all the year groups talking to the children about various Eco themes. Themes such as – Plasticology, bee keeping, the marine science centre, ‘Human Roots Community’, Eco projects undertaken in South Africa, climate change, ‘The Magic of Nature’ through Relax Kids, habitat gardens, the impact of the textile industry on the environment, growing your own vegetables, growing crops and farming, wildlife recording in Essex.
The Plasticology team, run by the Essex Wildlife Trust, spoke to the whole school in an assembly and worked with a class of children. They also spent time with the School Eco Team discussing future plans and projects.
As you can see, we have had a very informative week.
Thank you so much to all our speakers, and to Mrs Broad and Mrs Skinner for collecting all our visitors.
