ECO Committee Spring Update

The ECO Committee had their first meeting of the spring term last week. They discussed lots of important issues including turning the lights off to save energy, creating bug hotels to help our wildlife, recycling and terracycling. Terracycling is eliminating waste by recycling non-recyclable items. To help them achieve this, they have contacted our glue stick supplier to ask if they can send back empty glue sticks to be reused! What a great idea! Watch this space for an update.

The Big Schools Birdwatch - Spring 2022

We have signed up for The Big Schools Birdwatch which is an annual event that takes place January to February. Big Schools' Birdwatch is a simple bird survey for pupils to take part in and enjoy together. This activity is about counting the number of birds seen in the school grounds. Last year, the bird that was seen the most was the Wood Pigeon. What will it be this year?

The ECO Committee have their bronze award!!

Congratulations to our ECO Committee who have recently been awarded their Bronze Award for all their hard work over the past 18months. We have successfully met the criterion which includes establishing an ECO Committee (and maintaining it even during the pandemic), creating an action plan and sharing this with the whole school. We have lots of new ideas that we will be working on to help us move towards our Silver Award and we will be looking for new recruits soon!

During the most recent lockdown, we have still been busy with our ECO Committee activities in school and at home:

RSPB Birdwatch

Thank you to everyone that took part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch this year, the results are in! The blackbird, last year’s number one, has switched to second place. The Woodpigeon is now in the top spot. It’s the largest and commonest pigeon, making its home in fields, woods, parks and gardens.

Autumn 2020-21 Action Plan

2019/2020

Our ECO Committee

In 2019, we created an ECO Committee to encourage members of Almond Hill Junior School and its community to become more environmentally aware and promote environmentally friendly behaviours that help us to reduce; reuse and recycle; protect and care for the natural spaces around us. 

We established our ECO Committee and as a group decided on some initial actions we wanted to take to help us improve our environmental impact and celebrate the lovely green spaces we are lucky to have around us in our school grounds.

Our Action Plan in 2019-20 focused on these three areas

Energy 


What we've done so far:

Our “Last out, lights out!” campaign.

Litter


What we've done so far: 

Year 4 regular litter picker team.

School Grounds

Although our plans were disrupted by lockdown in 2020, our members and school community still enjoyed various activities and helped us to carry on with some of our plans:

At home:

Building bug hotels
Growing our own plants
