We are delighted to say we received a letter in the October break confirming renewal of our Eco flag for another 2 years! We have shared this with all the children and hope to have our Eco flag flying outside the Nursery again soon. Our action plan for 2016-2017 can be read here. The main focus areas this year are our Nursery grounds improvements and Food and the Environment. We continue to work on recycling, biodiversity and energy saving across the nursery.
Look out for photos coming soon of our big Garden Clean Up on November!
We are working hard on our Eco Tasks in the nursery! We have submitted our application this term (Term 4) to renew our Green Flag. You can read our application here.
We have also included some photos of our activities we do – recycling, reusing, measuring, recording etc as well as a look at some of our projects ongoing in the garden. Our Eco Floor book and display are available in the Nursery entrance area for anyone to see the childrens’ interests and ideas.
Our side garden is now cleared and covered in bark. The children have lots of ideas about how to use it and what to plant to attract wildlife. It will soon be ready for us to use. The new fence and gate are ready for painting.
We measure the rainfall and record it on our chart in Nursery. Then we can compare the rainfall in different months. Then we add the water collected to the water butt so we can reuse the water for our garden!
