At our first meeting we decided to focus initially on making our school more ECO friendly.
We discussed easy ways of saving energy around the school such as turning off lights in empty classrooms, closing doors to keep in the heat, turning down radiators rather than opening windows in classrooms if its too warm. We put up signs around the school to remind staff and children to turn off lights and switches around the school.
Our next mission is to make sure that each classroom has enough bins for recycling paper and plastics and to ensure that they are clearly labelled.
Jamie Stone had the great idea of creating an Energy Squad in Years 5 and 6 to be responsible for switching off lights and closing doors around the school at breaks and lunchtimes.
Frieth School is registered as a Eco School and is currently working towards the Green Flag Award.
Our School Council are in the process of carrying out an Environmental Review to decide which three topics to focus on this year.
Once the results are collated they will inform the school about what they have discovered and display a copy on the Eco-Board.
RSPB BIG GARDEN WATCH 27 - 29 JANUARY 2023
The fact that we’ve lost 38 million birds from UK skies In the last 50 years we have lost 38 million birds from the UK skies. This underlines that nature is in crisis. In our own back gardens house sparrows are struggling and starlings are undergoing a severe decline. As a conservation charity, our Birdwatch results will help monitor how our UK birds are faring in the face of the nature and climate emergency.
