Recycling Crisps packets

We are starting our Eco Warriors off this year with a recycling experience fromTerracycle. We are recycling all crisp packets and hopefully gaining points which we can then exchange for money towards our gardening.

Making a difference in the community

Our Y3 class have done a community litter pick in the street outside our school. They are campaigning for more litter bins to be put in Chesterton and more big recycling bins to be placed in car parks. The street is the cleanest it has been for a long while. They will be writing to the council to hopefully persuade them to put more bins in Chesterton.

Snowdrops for Spring

Year 1 have started their Eco lessons with planting Snowdrops under our Christmas trees at the front of our school. They learned about what parts the Snowdrop has and what makes it grow. We can not wait to see their little white flowers in the spring.
