Water 

Eco Warriors have been writing letters to the council to ask for a ‘water butt’ for nursery and the secret garden. They want to recycle rainwater to water the plants and vegetables in the secret garden and help nursery with their water area to save water in school.

Healthy Living

Eco Warriors loved improving the secret garden. They tidied the planters and planted a variety of fruit and vegetables.

Article 24 - all children have the right to good food.

 

A HUGE thank you to the ‘Dutch Garden Centre’ for donating some fruit and vegetable plants to the school Ecology Club for their new project. They are going to create a fruit and vegetable patch in the Secret Garden.

Healthy Living

Eco Warriors made a delicious healthy snack with Jackie from Asda Community. They tried new fruits such as candyfloss grapes and white strawberries.

 

Litter

Eco Warriors took part in 'The Great British Spring Clean'. They had a walk around the local area litter picking to keep it tidy and took a tally of the waste that was collected to compare. Eco Warriors were Stranton Superstars!
