At Stoneyholme we care about our school, our community and our world.
On our sustainable journey over the past few years, we have worked extremely hard to fulfil the requirements of Eco Schools England and have successfully gained both Bronze and Silver Award.
We are now looking to achieve the Green Flag Award.
We have also achieved Levels 1, 2 and 3 for the RHS Campaign for School Gardening.
We are extremely lucky to have a team of volunteers that listen to the ideas of pupils in their class and suggest ways that we can make small changes that make a big difference.
Each class in Key Stage 1 and 2 has chosen an Eco Ranger to represent them for the year ahead. The new team are looking forward to sharing ideas and putting actions into place to create a better environment.
This year's Eco Rangers are:
Abdul Rahman 1F Hameem 1S Zaara Khan 1K
Abdullah Abbas 2B Delia 2G
Rumaisa Zaman 3W Suha 3C
Zubaida Khalique Y4
Isa Zaman 5I Zikra Bhatti 5G
Hafssa Hussain 6H Danyaal Thalukdar 6R
Together we have created an Eco Code which demonstrates our understanding of the responsibility we have to look after our planet. It is displayed throughout our school so we can be reminded of the values it represents wherever we go.
As an Eco team, we have created a Rights Respecting Charter to promote our Eco code around school. All children are aware of their right and responsibility in school.
The Eco team promoted a litter competition around school from Keep Britain Tidy.
The deadline was 12th March and we were so pleased with the amount of children that took part. Lets hope there is a winner from our school whose poem will be published in a National Litter book of poems!
Thank you to all the children who took part!
We have completed an environmental review of our school and have picked 3 areas to focus on so we know what we need to change over the next year so we can be even more Eco-friendly.
The 3 areas are:
We will keep you updated with these changes and suggest ideas that you can do at home to help us reach our target.
Wondering what to do with all that spare material?
Have you got any glass, metal, plastic or card and are wondering what to do with it?
Well, help the environment by making sure you recycle appropriately.
The Eco team discussed Waste Week (5-9th March) and have done an amazing job of spreading the message to classes, families and relatives.
Remember to reuse and recycle!
We are also happy to take those used batteries and pens that no longer work off your hands to help raise money for the school as part of our effort to recycle what we can.
Have you got a bag of material or any old (clean) clothes that you no longer wear?
We organised a 'Recycle 4 school' day with Roberts Recycling Ltd in order to raise funds for our school.
We are pleased to announce we raised £110.00 from the collection.
Thank you to everyone that took part!
Walk to School Week (14.05.18)
Walk to school week was celebrated on the w/c 14th May. All children took part in a variety of activities in their classes that related to walking and its benefits. Some of the activities that were carried out included:
.Tally chart of the cars that passed by the school day
. A Pictogram showing how many children walked to school each day
. A leaflet promoting walking and the benefits
. Non - chronological reports around air pollution
. How walking affects the body
At the end of the week, there was a celebration of walking and we supported 'Living Streets' by holding Happy ShoesDay!
Children, parents and staff wore their best shoes to school to celebrate the love of walking.
We raised a massive £142.40. It was great seeing everyone's happy shoes!
