Recycling Crisp Packets
We have started a campaign to recycle crisp packets from our lunch boxes. Did you know that we eat a staggering 7.3 Billion packets of crisps in the UK every year.
Switch Off Fortnight
Our Year 4 Class made some switch Off Fortnight Posters to remind everyone to be energy aware.
Crisps lovely Crisps
We have started a campaign to recycle crisp packets usually thrown away aftwr lunch in our school. We led an assembly to tell everyone the staggering amount of crisps consumed in our country every year. You wouldn't belive it we eat a staggering 7,300,000,000 thats 7.3 billion every year more than any other European country.
Switch Off Fortnight
We have kicked off our Switch off fortnight with an assembly to get every one involved.
On the 2nd October 2019 our school was assessed by a Green Flag assessor. We passed and are just waiting for our Green flag to show our local community that we are an Eco School. Well done to the eco warriors and everyone who workeed so hard over the last few years.
Nature at RiceLane
Our whole school has taken part in "what's under your feet"? this year and has found out some amazing things. We had visits to all of our year groups by RSPB and became investigators in our own grounds. We had an amazing time and look forward to posting our photos!
Ballard Bee Blog - Part 4
Having decided on a site for the hive(s), we have gone ahead and bought beekeeping suits, ready for when the bees arrive! Here are 3 of the Ballard Eco-Ambassadors, modelling the suits... We can't wait to welcome our little visitors!
Ballard Bee Blog - Part 3
Mr Bellars has liaised with Mr Povey, the Site Manager, Mr Whitbread, the Director of Sport and Mrs Munro, the Bursar, and the final site for the Ballard Bees has been finalised! We are going to put them on the far field, near the lone pine tree in the far right hand corner... To start with, we will be "bee-sitting" the Lopez-Dunning family's bees, with a view to getting our own afterwards.
