St Mary's Church of England (Aided) Primary School


Our Eco Committee includes children from each year group. We meet at least once a term to discuss what we’d like to do and the areas our school needs to work on. We have carried out various activities so far to try and make our beautiful grounds even more wildlife friendly. The activities have included making a bug hotel, planting fruit trees, planting daffodils, feeding the birds, collecting fruit waste to compost, making posters, litter picking as well as organising Eco focussed days. 


Eco Day 2021 


On Wednesday 7th July 2021, Foundation to Year 5 enjoyed taking part in our Eco day. We invited Andy Warn to come and do his 'Sounds Rubbish' music workshop with each of the year groups. This involved the children banging different rhythms on bins and buckets with tubes. Andy really kept the children focused and the children smiled throughout. Many thanks to 'The Friends' for offering to pay for this experience. When back in classes different year groups took part in various activities. Year 5 made their own natural paintbrushes and paints to create pictures. Years 3 and 4 studied the impact of the clothing industry on the environment and got creative with rubbish. They also added a 'living' roof to the school bug hotel, many thanks to Mr Golding for creating this for us as well as providing lots of things we could add to it. Year 1 and 2 studied how they could help the environment and designed their own recycling logo. We look forward to continuing to focus on looking after our planet during the next academic year.
