Eco - School

Welcome to Sudley Infants Eco page.

 

Here at Sudley Infant School we understand the importance of being Eco Friendly and how important it is that we all help to look after the Environment and the Earth.

 

We are currently part of the Eco Schools project and have held the Eco Schools Bronze award for a number of years.  We are going to be working towards gaining the Eco Schools Silver award during this school year.

 

As a school we take part in many different activities and projects and all enjoying finding new and fun ways to help both our local and wider environment.

 

Here are some of the activities we have taken part in this year.

 

Each term  the children take part in an outdoor assembly.  Each member of staff and the school council members nominate children from different classes to be awarded a certificate, bookmark and sticker for keeping themselves healthy, maybe for eating a healthy balanced diet, trying to taste new healthy foods or taking part in sporting activities.  The assembly is delivered by the school council, with a little help from some of the adults and all the children try their best to receive a nomination.

Earlier this year the children enjoyed learning about recycling and how we can re-use waste materials such as newspaper, bottles and tubes .  Each class created their own art display using recycled materials.

Each classroom has its own paper recycling box, we also collect used printer ink cartridges, used batteries and take part in recycling old clothes during our 'Bags to School' week. 
Three times per year the children take part in 'Walk to School' week.  Each child will receive a walk to school booklet, a sticker will be rewarded for each day the child walks to school and there are some great quizzes and games to complete too ! !  The class that has the most children walking to school will receive 'The Golden Shoe ' trophy to keep in the classroom and also receive a gift voucher that they can spend on something of the classes choice.   smiley 
Each year the year 2 children go on a trip to visit Mersey Road Allotments.  The children enjoy spending time with some of the allotment owners and find out lots of new facts and information about growing your own vegetables, the stages involved in making compost, how to make homes for mini beasts and even get to plant their own seeds.

We also like to grow our own fruits and vegetables and usually harvest a good selection of fresh foods between July and September.  When we have collected the freshly grown foods we cook them and eat them in our classes - sometimes we even share them with the rest of the school.  We have grown -

potatoes, tomatoes, radish, onions, beetroot, cabbage, parsnips, cucumber, a range of fresh herbs and some yummy juicy strawberries.

 

The children help to weed the beds and water the vegetables and fruit as they grow! !

These are our school hens.  Each class has had a turn caring for the hens and collecting the fresh eggs they lay daily.  The children enjoyed cooking with the eggs and were all happy to taste the eggs  they had cooked .
