At St Paul's C of E Primary School, we are educated for life with the love of God and Christian values at the heart of our school.

 

New Eco-code

The Eco-school captains designed a new Eco-code. They chose their new favourite code which was designed by Bryony.

Well done Bryony!

Our Eco-code

QUICK LINKS

Recycling Pens

Through Terracycle we are now going to recycle our whiteboard pens. The Eco-school captains made boxes for their classrooms and year groups. There were some fantastic boxes. Keep recycling!

How do we get to school?

This term we have entered a competition to design a banner to go outside schools to encourage people not to drive.  This seemed like a good idea after our Green Day assembly on pollution!

Our competition entries.

Year 5 have also been doing their cycling proficiency which will hopefully encourage them to safely ride to school.

 

Green Day 2018

The Year 6 Eco-schools captains put together an assembly talking about pollution caused by vehicles in the area of London.  They put together a quiz about this and the assembly that they had seen the previous week on rhinos.

Year 1 thought about litter and made posters to remind others about reusing objects and not to litter.

Year 3 learnt about recycling and how different materials can be recycled.

Year 4 looked at water usage; thinking about how and why we need to save water, particularly focussing on the recent problems in Cape Town.

 

The London Beekeepers Association

The London Beekeepers Association visited us on Green Day.  They brought with them a hive and explained about the importance of bees and how they pollinate plants by collecting nectar.  Reception years 3 and 4 were lucky enough to visit them for a session, but they stayed in the playground throughout the day for other children to come and talk to them and see the bees.  What a fantastic visit!

 

What’s Under Your Feet

Today we took a sample of soil and investigated what was in there.  Although we didn’t find a huge variety of bugs, we did uncover more worms than we have found previously.  Our longest was 19 cm.  We also added the data to the Pod website and blogged about our experience.

 

Toy Swap

Phoebe and Ali set up the stall, received toys and gave out tokens.  Children exchanged their toys for a different toy to take home and play with.  It was a great success and lots of children really enjoyed being able to choose something new without having to spend any money. 

GOOD RE-USING!

 

Green Radio

Archie, Tejan, Bryony and Sam had a great afternoon out visiting the New Malden Environmental Centre and pre-recording a set to be played during their Green Week.  We chose a variety of songs to listen to and talked to Sam about the different things that we are doing at school to help the environment.  These included Earth Hour, Waste Week, What’s Under Your Feet and a toy swap.  It was a great experience.
