We have 2 Eco Clubs!
Wednesday at 12.30pm in Mrs Lamb’s classroom (for the Waste Reduction Team – litter picking, energy monitors, paper recycling)
Thursday at 12.30pm in Mrs Chepelin’s classroom for the Gardening Club (looking after the wildlife area and the raised beds)
The clubs encourage everyone to be vigilant with their recycling, energy use and care of the environment.
Check out the changes in the Wildlife Garden and look for the signs of Autumn!
The Eco Team worked hard to get the first GREEN FLAG and are proud to say we’ve been awarded our second!
remember to switch off lights you are not using
turn off taps and don’t let that water run!
pick up litter
don’t waste food
look after our planet!
Signs of Winter
What signs of Winter have you been spotting?
We are always looking for helpers with gardening!
Thursday lunchtime 12.30 – 1pm with the Gardening Club or any afternoons that you can spare, please let us know as we are grateful for any help you can offer!
Our Eco Code
We’re the pupils of Juniper Green,
It’s important to keep our school clean.
Reducing rubbish is our aim,
Hitting green targets is our game.
Planting, digging and growing greens,
A good environment is what Eco means.
One of our projects was to build a greenhouse made from plastc bottles – an excellent example of recycling.
The greenhouse has been well used for growing plants over the year – what will we be growing this year?
We are currently looking at repairing the roof of the green house to make it a bit stronger as it’s been damaged in the last high winds.
The Willow tunnel
The willow tunnel ends at our outdoor classroom which is also made of willow. Around this is our wildlife garden.
The gardening club and volunteers keep this tidy by weaving the willow through to keep it growing over in a tunnel shape.
