Eco Warrior Report - March 2017

The Eco Warriors have been busy over the past few months and are now close to achieving the Silver Eco Schools Award.

Eco club have constructed four nesting boxes which Mel has kindly put up on trees around the school. Keep an eye out for birds moving in!!

Two composters have been located and are ready to start receiving fruit waste along with grass and tree clippings from our school site. We hope to use this compost to help growing plants and vegetables next term.

Finally despite the rain last Friday the Eco Warriors and Eco Club took part in the Great British Spring Clean challenge and spent part of the day cleaning up our school grounds and Aberford Park. They were surprised at the amount of rubbish they found, especially near to the bins provided.

Houses of Parliament Trip - Monday 21st November 2016

On Monday the Eco Warriors went to the Houses of Parliament in London, we got a tour of Parliament and learnt that Her Majesty has her own private toilet behind a keyhole in the robing room!  We met an MP called Kirsty who is a member of the SNP and Scott who is a BBC Journalist.  We also went into the House of Lords and the House of Commons, the House of Commons is green and the House of Lords is red.Five of us walked down Downing Street and we knocked on the Prime Ministers door and we delivered a letter.  We heard Big Ben ringing his bells, we looked around Westminster Abbey and saw some tombs of people who have died.

We saw the throne that and King or Queen sits on when they are crowned, just as we leaving there was an announcements and they welcomed Cowley Hill School to the Abbey.  On the coach we saw lots of different things like Winter Wonderland and the Queens garden.  We had a great time!
