Following some impressive manifesto deliveries, the voting booths were positioned and ballot papers placed in order for the children to cast their votes and decide who would represent their classes on the Eco Committee this year.
Results will be announced on Thursday - watch this space!
Last term we had some very exciting news regarding our application for the 'Young Environmentalist Awards of 2015'. Our school had been finalised as one of five finalists for the whole of Lincolnshire! During the last week of term, representatives from all of our Eco groups across school went to Lincoln to deliver a presentation and a display about our superb Jubilee garden and our fantastic Eco work that we do in school.
We are very proud to have been awarded joint second place in the awards for 2015. This achievement shows all the hard work that the children do, throughout the year, on a daily basis. We have worked hard to develop a whole school ethos and the children take great care on looking after our grounds throughout the year. Well done!
The school grounds are starting to look very colourful and a lot of the vegetables that we planted last term have started to sprout. The school kitchen will hopefully have lots of different vegetables to use in the children's meals, including potatoes, onions, peas, beetroots, carrots, radishes and a multitude of herbs.
Our sunflowers have also started to grow, and we will hopefully beat last year's record of 1 metre, 76 cm!
Last term the Eco Warriors planted courgette seeds for a competition run by the 'Farm Kitchen'. They are competing with other Lincolnshire schools to see who can grow the heaviest weight in courgettes. Our seeds have taken well and are ready for transplanting into the garden before they reach the height of Mrs Howson's ceiling!
A big thank you to everyone who attended Green Saturday at the weekend. We were very lucky as the weather was kind, although a little cold!
The children had fun planting our new vegetable crops, including carrots, potatoes, peas, radishes and onions aswell as planting bulbs and general tidying. The school grounds are beginning to show some colour, as you can see from the photos. As the bulbs are starting to come through, please remember to keep off the grassy banks to ensure the flowers can flourish. Thank you.
We are delighted that we have been awarded our 6th Green Flag this term. An inspector from Keep Britain Tidy visited us and talked to our Eco Committee, Eco Ambassadors, Green Group and Gardening Group. He was very impressed with all the hard work we do in school towards our Eco agenda. Well done everyone!
