Welcome to Eco Club
At Eco club we do many fun activities to teach the children about how to look after our planet. Our motto is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle so that we can have a happy healthy school.
Eco club takes place every Friday lunch time at 1245 in the Year 3 classroom. It is run by three Year 6 girls who organise a range of activities both indoor and outdoor. Every week your teacher will give out 5 tickets. If you are one of those lucky people who have a ticket then you can come to Eco club. If you don't believe us this is what the children say:
"I like Eco club because we can learn how to save the world and not litter." Lizzie, Year 3.
"I like Eco club because it's exciting, my favourite activity was collecting sticks on the field. I didn't know much about pollution but now I know much more!" Nicole, Year 3
"I love Eco club, it's very crafty and fun. We get to know things that we've never learnt before." Daisy and Matilda, Year 2.

Today in Eco club we went out into the garden to do a retrieval task. We were surprised to see a pheasant in the garden. The children were given a list of items to find such as a leaf, flower and twig. They were also asked to find an insect. They managed to find lots of worms.

For our first week back after the Christmas holidays, we thought abut words that are Eco or Eco friendly and then we made acrostic poems with them. We talked for a while about some tricky letters to match words with. They were amazing!.
Scarlett said, "I loved the group chat that we had - ECO club is amazing!"
Jai said, "Eco club is great!"
Nicole Said, "Eco is exciting, we do lots of fun things."
We also drew leaves and wrote what we love about Eco on them. Here is a selection of them:

Today we have talked about how Christmas is linked to Eco. We split some scrap paper in half and wrote 'blue bin' and 'Eco bin'. We then quizzed the children about the different types of rubbish we have at Christmas and which bin they would go in. For example used Christmas crackers would go in the 'Eco bin', leftover food would go in the 'blue bin'.

For our first group meeting we decided to go out and about around the school grounds to collect sticks. The following week we used the sticks to make either nest or eco club signs.
