What is the Eco Committee?
Duxford Primary School Eco Committee is a group of children from nearly every different year group in the school that are deeply passionate about helping the environment to stay healthy. Also, we aim to reduce the amount of plastic being used in the world that is causing damage. We have already started and have planted a wonderful number of trees and flowers in the field across the road called Brewery Field. We are planning on doing much more. We are also engaged about helping the animals that suffer from what humans have been doing in the world, we like to think how we can help animals in different ways.
What the Eco Committee been up to?
Last term I worked with the Year 5 Eco group to write a travel plan and I am pleased to tell you that this has gained national accreditation. We have events and activities planned for this year to develop cycling and scooting skills and we encourage you to make your journeys to school in a sustainable and/or healthy way. The Eco group will restart this term with representatives from Year 2 to Year 6: Connor-Kye, Lizzie, Harriet, Kiera, Martha, Ethan, Samuel, Alex S and Ethan.
Our plans for the future.
We plan on reducing plastic that is being used in school and want to try to recycle more at school.
We have also said that we won’t have plastic cups at the Christmas fair and no crackers.
We talked to a botanist who said we will be inspecting grass at the school and watching it grow. These grasses are very special as they used to be extinct. It is part of a study by The Natural History Museum and we are very lucky to be able to take part.
