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.

Walk4Wildlife

On a Friday afternoon Reception, years 3 and 4 went for a walk in Richmond Park to raise money for The Shark Trust through Walk4Wildlife.  We were part of an attempt to break the Guiness World record for the amount of people walking at one time.

 

Eco-Schools Green Flag Award

We are very pleased to announce that we have been approved for the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award renewal this September.  This is the highest award that is given to schools.  Thank you to all the staff, children and parents for support in these activities.  A special well done to the Eco-Schools captains and Laura Nash (Parent Eco-Schools)!

"I was particularly impressed by the contributions from members of the Eco-Committee.  Most members participated during our discussion, which was impressive given that some only joined the committee last term.  The discussion displayed a high level of engagement and involvement in the School's eco activities.  Older pupils especially had a good level of awareness of the challenges of maintaining eco-friendly behaviours.  All members demonstrated very good awareness of waste and recycling issues.  I would like to thank the Eco-Committee and Mrs Carrington for their continued good work and enthusiasm, and for the welcome that they gave me during the assessment visit".
