Our New Eco Action Plan 2023-24!

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.

Our New Eco Code 2023-24!

Earth Hour - March 2024

The children have been learning about large organisations, whose aims are to help the planet by addressing the issues we face with deforestation, plastic pollution, whaling and much, much more. We found out how these organisations were created and the ideas of those behind them. It is also Earth Day on Saturday 23rd of March from 8.30 to 9.30pm. A time to demonstrate support for environment protection. You can take part by doing fun activities such as pillow fights or hide and seek in the dark, or dinner by candle light, maybe even a late walk to find out what wildlife is also about. Whatever you do,  by turning off your electric and electronics for just an hour will contribute to helping our planet.

We will also be taking part in school on Monday 25th March. Each class has pledged an hour where they will learn without the aid of electronics. Have a look at some of the wonderful posters the children have created.

Meat-Free Mondays in Spring 1

The Eco Committee have been researching ways to become more environmentally friendly and found out about Meat Free Mondays. This initiative is an excellent way to help save water, land, animals' lives and improve our own health. 

See our jazzy poster and checkout this link to Meat Free Mondays, if you would like more information. 

Children across the whole school will be learning about this in their Global Learning lessons next half term. 

FIND Foodbank Donations December 2023

The Eco Committee are delighted at the response to their foodbank donation appeal and want to thank all those who have contributed to making this the biggest yet. 

Mrs Doe and her helpers (Mr Doe and Miss Batchelor from EYFS) delivered 3 carloads of food and supplies to FIND in Gainsborough, who were equally delighted!

Our Britannia community contributions will help make a different to many families in the run up to Christmas. 

Eco-Team Update September 2023

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.

Eco-Team Update March 2023

Britannia's Foodbank Donation to FIND - February 2023 - Update!

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.
