ECO Warriors

Spring 2

This half-term I have been meeting with the Eco warriors to conduct an environmental review of the school.

 

I am still awaiting the results from some classes but so far we have discovered that our strengths are Global Citizenship and looking after the school grounds.

 

We have discovered that we could be better at reducing litter and that we could also conserve more water.

 

Once I have had all the questionnaires back we will meet again next half-term and decide which topics to include in our action plan.

I would like to say a big well done to Theo for his fantastic video all about humanity v nature.

A great piece of honorary Eco warrior work!

I gave the Eco Warriors some recycling challenges to complete and recently they shared their findings with me...

 

Isaonas made a bird feeder out of a bottle he recycled.

Abigail researched how we can help the planet, stop climate change, how science helps to aid recycling and the effect plastic has in the ocean.

Poppy made two lovely posters, one about recycling and the other about plastic in the ocean.

Logan and Fern watched videos about recycling and made notes.

Lucas managed to go five days without using any plastic. 

Harry, Ila and Freya all made posters about recycling.

Amber did an audit of 6RA to see how many things in their lunchbox were recyclable.

ECO Warriors

Hello, Miss Ackroyd here to tell you what being an ECO Warrior is all about!

 

As ECO Warriors we….

  • Evaluate our school environment. We think about what is good about our school environment but also want isn’t so good and could be made better.
  • Then come up with action plans in order to improve our school environment.
  • Meet regularly to discuss how we are progressing with our action plans.
  • Take notes about what we discussed in our meetings and pin them to our eco-board for others to read.
  • Tell our class mates about what we are currently working on; either in tutor time, assemblies, in school newsletters, on the school website or on twitter (and of course on our notice board).
  • Have an ECO warrior in each class so that each year group is fairly represented.

 

We intend to:

  • Improve the environment at Westacre and also in the local community.
  • Share with everyone how important it is for us all to look after the world around us.
  • Learn what we can do in order to look after the environment.
  • Increase our knowledge and understanding of recycling, energy usage and sustainable living.

 
 As an ECO Warrior you would be expected to attend ECO Warrior meetings (usually one lunchtime each half term, but possibly more frequently depending on how much discussion we need, or how much news/progress we have to share). You would then feedback what we have discussed in our meetings to your classmates during tutor time. If any of your classmates had any suggestions about how we could improve our school environment, they would speak to you and then you would share these ideas at our meeting.
