Our Eco Committee include children from Nursery to Year 4.
We have worked very hard over the summer term to get our garden thriving! We have been growing lots, including, pumpkins, tomatoes, sweetcorn and potatoes. We have been very lucky to have been donated many plants from the Virgo family.
Our Eco Committee meet once every half term. Our first meeting will involve completing an Environmental review which will then create our Action Plan with our targets for the year.
Greenfield have taken part in Bike to School week, it has been wonderful to see how many children have biked to school despite the weather! Below are some of the pictures we have been sent in of our children taking part.
As an Academy we have taken part in the Big Bird Watch. All the children as part of their Learning Log counted how many birds landed in their garden in the last weekend of January. At Greenfield, the Eco Committee took turns over lunchtime to count how many birds landed in our garden. The most common birds that visit our garden are Carrion Crows and Robins. We had a wonderful time watching the birds enjoy the food we leave for them and it was lovely hearing the Eco Committee share their experiences of bird watching at home.
We have entered the wheelbarrow competition again this year that is taking place at Shuttleworth. The theme this year was Jubilee. The Eco children thoroughly enjoyed bringing a crown and cushion to life with flowers. Children in Robins then designed crowns to make bunting around the edge of the wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow will be on display at Shuttleworth between 28th May and 4th June.
