Single-Use Plastic Free Packed Lunches
Thank you to everyone who supported this initiative to raise awareness of how much single use plastic is in our packed lunches. It has definitely made all of us think about how we can reduce the amount of plastic we use every day. At school we are now recycling our pens, glue sticks, batteries and crisp packets as well as cardboard and plastic. Beech class have also written to Mr George Eustice (MP) about their concerns and to make suggestions on changes that could be made nationally.
Big Battery Hunt
The Big Battery Hunt is a back for year 2! Last year we managed to recycle 4 million batteries as part of our nationwide battery recycling initiative funded by Duracell. Young people in schools across the UK are encouraged to think about the importance of recycling, and then challenged to collect as many used batteries as they can. The aim is for each pupil to contribute to an overall total and help us beat last year’s total! Each family will have been given a collecting box this week and there will be a big collection box outside the office when it arrives to empty your batteries into.
The last day for bringing in any batteries will be 24th May. Prizes that could be won for school are:
A 2 night class trip to the sustainability centre,
A 3 year subscription to MyMaths worth £1000,
£2000 of school equipment,
Certificates & Trophies!

Summer Festival - 20th July (11am - 2pm)
This year our Summer Festival will have a Sea theme. Children can wear, blues and greens (sea colours) or maybe be a pirate, sea creature or mermaid etc. The children will be making things to carry on the day in class before the event. We will also be trying to reduce the amount of plastic used on the day. Watch this space for more details. We will be asking for donations for the fair nearer the time.
