Welcome to the Eco Committee page


We have some big ideas for improving the outdoor space around school this year - keep your eyes open to see what happens!



Grant from Yorkshire Agricultural Society

We have been fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS) which will go towards the improvement of the nature area as we aim to transform it into a sensory garden. We can't wait for the new year to get stuck in!


If you are interested in helping out with the Eco Committee's work on the nature area, have any resources which you may be able to donate or have some expertise in landscaping/gardening, we would love to hear from you! Please contact the school office or Miss Hind on:

Eco Committee trip to Harlow Carr

On Wednesday, the Eco Committee visited Harlow Carr to take part in an Energy workshop. We learnt about solar and wind power, but the highlight of the day was being able to build our own wind turbines. In groups, we had to create our own turbine blades and stand and at the end, we had a competition to see which team had been able to generate the most power. We did quite well and used lots of maths and DT skills as we worked!

This week, we have been planting primroses and bulbs in the new raised bed outside of the school's reception.
