National Recycling Week - 24th to 30th September 2018

In National Recycling Week, year 4 had a visit from Mike Robinson and Rebecca from Tameside Recycling.  We learned how to sort our rubbish to make sure we recycle as much as we can.  Year 4 look forward to sharing what they have learned with their parents and carers and other classes at school

Eco Warriors and School Council Met with the Governors - February 2018

Meeting the Governors

Our Eco Warriors met with the school governors on Governor Open Morning to share the work that they have been doing to increase awareness of environmental issues. They gave a presentation, which they had previously given to the whole school following a 'Paper Free Friday', and then held a question and answer session.

Paper Free Friday

The Eco Warriors had examined the school's paper usage over a normal school week and presented their findings and recommendations for reducing the amount of trees we consume, along with the energy and resources it takes to make paper. They considered home use as well in the forms of kitchen roll and tissue as well as printer paper.

Christmas Workshops- We had fun making things to with Christmas from recyclable materials

Eco Scarecrow Day

 

We used recycled materials to create scarecrows to promote our harvest food collection.

Recycling Centre Visit

Millbrook's Green Ambassadors visited Longley Lane Recycling Centre to see how household waste is sorted and recycled.  The children learnt lots of useful facts which they are very keen to share with the rest of the school.
