This years Eco Action Plan is ambitious! The 2023/24 Eco Committee have come up with some fantastic ideas: some are ideas we are expanding on, some are ideas that will take a lot of planning and may run over two academic years. There are also ideas that children can take home with them, share with their families and even work on in their own time.
At Britannia we are celebrating our Eco School Award with merit, that we achieved last year, thanks to all the hard work of Mrs Doe and many children from across the school, who were involved in gardening, litter picking, donations for the local foodbank and much, much more. Our winner plaque is in pride of place on our Eco Board outside the hall for everyone to see.
This year, classes from Year 1 to Year 6 have chosen their class Eco Reps, who will be in charge of watering the class plants, turning off the screens and lights when the class leave their classrooms and ensuring that everyone knows which bin to use in their classrooms.
Our Eco Board has been updated with information on the 10 Eco School Topics, 3 of which we will work on over the next year.
There will be regular opportunities for children from across the school to get involved in everything eco. Weather permitting, Friday lunchtimes will be KS1 Eco Lunch Club, with gardening or litter picking, and Wednesday lunchtimes KS2 can get involved too.
There will also be an after school Eco Club on Thursdays, where children will be involved in deciding what Eco School Topics to focus on and helping to arrange the events and initiatives that the school gets involved in. They will also get involved in looking after the indoor and outdoor plants and litter picking.
Over the summer the raised bed in the middle play ground has become very overgrown and the KS2 children have already started to tidy this up, but it is a massive project and will take a few lunchtimes to get it under control.
Spring Term 2023
Britannia's Foodbank Donation to FIND February 2023
Over the last term, children across the school have been learning about the Cost-of-Living Crisis, how they can help their families save money on energy, fuel and water, as well as how other families are affected. This has led to the children wanting to organise another foodbank donation to FIND in Ipswich.
If you would like to donate any food to this amazing charity, please bring your donations to the Bell Door before and after school on Thursday and Friday 2nd and 3rd of February.
See our Eco Club's excellent posters, below, that have been put up around the school.
