Eco day

Eco day was so much fun. In the morning we had an opening assembly, led by Mrs Wellham and Miss Eastlake about trying to become an Eco-school. We looked at the goals we can strive to achieve. We then went into our classroom and looked at the problems around the World with the lack of water. We learnt about Water Aid, how they help and which areas of the World suffer the most and there were some shocking statistics that really made us think. We create a droplet poster we the facts that we had learnt. (Please see below for the combined results) After break, we thought about water closer to home and how we could make a difference. We discussed as a class about water saving ideas: using bath water more than once, only putting on a full load of washing in the washing machine or dishwasher, putting a water butt in the garden to collect rainwater to use on the garden and many more ideas.

 In the afternoon we had a recycled fashion show, where we used cereal boxes, plastic bags or newspaper to create an outfit hat was fit for the catwalk!
