Eco Squad announcement.
Eco squad would like to let you know that Earth Hour on Saturday 24th March at 8.30pm. Earth Hour is where hundreds of millions of people across the world will 'switch off' their lights for one hour. You could take part by making a simple change to your every day life, such as carrying a reusable coffee cup, switching to a green energy supplier, or washing your clothes at 30 degrees or lower. It might seem like something small, but together we can make a big difference.
Wear it Wild Day 2017. WWF-Dress up Day.
SOTTO Celebration Event:
Eco-squad were invited to take part in the celebration event for the competition that they had been taking part in.
We got to display our finished projects and show them to lots of important people including the Mayor of Hatfield as well as other children. Then we were judged across different categories and we were judged as having the best action plan out of the 6 different schools who attended.
During the event, we were treated to a delicious lunch and got to try lots of different activities in different eco-workshops.
Have a look at the powerpoint above to see what we got up to.
SOTTO Project - Switch On To Turning Off
This year we have been taking part in a project with other Hatfield schools to help us focus on how much energy we use.
We have been working alongside Onslow, who have been sending energy ambassadors to run a weekly peer to peer teaching session with years 3, 4 and 5 eco-squad reps.
They have acted as secret detectives to carry out secret energy monitoring and are in the process of creating a campaign to help our school use less energy.
The eco-squad reps presented their findings to the class and gathered information to be used in their campaign.
We have been busy electing our Eco-Squad representatives from our classes over the last few weeks.
These children have been chosen as our eco-squad representatives and will be taking part in and planning lots of exciting eco projects over the coming school year for us all.
If you have an eco-related question or idea then give it to your class reps so that they can bring them to our eco-squad meetings or place them in the school suggestion box.
Look out for them around our school!
