We learnt about environmental issues during Eco Warrior Day. The School Council wanted to raise awareness about local and global changes, and sent a letter to parents detailing activities for the day. A special Eco Warrior assembly introduced the day, prompting us to reflect on positive steps we already take to help care for the planet. We made pledge badges, pledging to do at least one other thing that would be of benefit. Some children made Meat-Free Friday posters to promote a special school lunch. A competition was held for pupils to design a sign for our allotment, emphasising the health, mindfulness and environmental benefits of gardening. Everyone enjoyed reading stories like ‘Nelson’s Dangerous Dive’, and taking part in a litter pick around the school grounds. Money raised will be divided between conservation charities and buying a composter for our school allotment. A whole school vote decided that we will be sponsoring an Amur leopard and giant panda through the WWF, because they are such endangered species.
