Running out of Time event

We were absolutely proud and privileged to be part of the ‘Running out Of Time’ event that is currently happening nationally across Britain, to raise awareness of climate change and bring communities together.  The children showcased some of the work they have been and are currently involved in, addressing environmental issues and looking after our world.  Our Green Team led the way by taking the baton on the race around our school field; a baton which contains a message that will be presented to our government when it arrives in London. We were also joined by local councillors and our local MP Lillian Greenwood, making this a real community event. This has provided the children to be part of a unique opportunity, raising awareness of climate change which will continue to affect our citizens of the future.

Southwold Eat Them to Defeat Them!

We are very proud to be part of this years ‘Eat Them to Defeat Them’ national campaign to encourage children to eat more vegetables, being led in school by our Green Team.  We have enjoyed decorating vegetables, making hats and badges and tasting vegetables. Children have completed mission packs at home as they defeat the vegetables by eating them.  Last week’s mission was to defeat carrots, this week the children will be defeating peppers, let’s get defeating those vegetables!

Green Hustle Festival

Southwold Primary were proud to help promote awareness of plastic pollution in our oceans. The work children created reusing plastic bottles formed part of a display at the Green Hustle Festival in Nottingham Market Square.

Green Hustle Festival

As part of the Green Hustle Festival today children made turtles and jellyfish by recycling plastic bottles. Our school Green Team led the project and enjoyed the story ‘The Whale who disappeared’ by Emma Websdale. We look forward to our work being part of the festival. 

Green Team- Wastebusters!

Our school Green Team are continuing our work as part of Wastebusters  to reduce waste in school, monitoring how much food is wasted at lunchtime, encouraging peers not to waste food and giving lunchtime stickers for empty plates

Waste Week

This week, the Green Team prepared their classes for Waste Week. Green Team Leaders, led and discussed the importance of not wasting food and why we need to recycle.  Using compost bins, which they created during Recycle Week last September, the pupils planted their own Begonia bulb. They also created posters to inform and persuade readers to not waste food.

Our pupils demonstrated a sound understanding and awareness of why we need to help protect and save our planet.
