Switch off Fortnight
This is the first time we have done SOF. Our Eco Group, called Asquith LTD (Lights Taps and Doors) did the audits after school. We really had to work as a team to make sure we didn't double count anything! We used our super detective skills and magnifying glasses to keep a watchful eye on everything and make sure we didn't miss anything! Between the audits we left 'thank you' and 'polite reminder' cards in all sorts of places such as classrooms, the staff room, the Heads office and the toilets to help keep everyone focused on saving energy.
Save the oceans
The eco board has just been changed to draw attention to the need to reduce plastic and link to the new marine topic. We are all trying to make a pledge to reduce our own use of plastic. Aleisha
Waste Week 2018
At St. Anthony's school, we enjoyed many different activities all about Waste. We delivered a Waste assembly to our whole school to tell them all about how we can recycle, renew and resuse. We set up a fact finding hunt around our school which everyone enjoyed taking part in. On our last day of Waste Week, Dale from Veolia came in to speak to KS1 and KS2 about what can be recycled and how it is used.
