'Veolia' - getting started with a compost bin!
An organisation came into school to support us in getting a compost bin set up to use. We are going to have a compost bin to put our fruit/veg peelings in. The visitors discussed with the children:
Some amazing facts the children found out were:
Worms are the best recyclers and live in a compost bin so we need to make sure we look after them in their houses (compost bin!)
Earth Day Assembly.
The school council had the opportunity to give the rest of the school information about what they had learnt about recycling and waste for our Earth Day assembly. They also shared ideas about how we could help our school including turning lights off to save energy, turning taps off and also introducing a compost bin for left over fruit and vegetables.
World Book Day.
The school council were given the opportunity to read their favourite story to a class in reception or another year 1 class. They all thoroughly enjoyed this great opportunity and the other children enjoyed their great reading!
