ECO Committee

The Year 6 members of our Eco Committee have created a fantastic PowerPoint presentation to introduce themselves and their roles. This has been shared across the school in our virtual assemblies and we would like to share it with you too.

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.

Growing our own plants
