The Great Sketty Potato Grow Off

Eco Councillors have been working with Mrs Morgan, one of our Grandparents and a fellow Eco warrior to launch The Great Sketty Potato Grow Off.

They have prepared potatoes and pots ready for growing and have given each class two potatoes (to grow on the window sill) in preparation to plant after Easter.

The children will follow a set of instructions to learn how to successfully grow the potatoes and there will be a competition to see which class can grow the most. The children will be able to monitor the growth of the potatoes and when they are fully grown they will be given to Alison our school cook in the kitchen to cook for the children at lunchtime.

Happy growing all!

The Great Battery Hunt!

We have recently signed up to The Big Battery Hunt a nationwide campaign to help recycle more batteries. We would be most grateful if you could help us with this challenge at home.

A small battery box has been sent home with your child for you to recycle as a family. When the box is full simply return it to school with your child so they can deposit their batteries into the large battery box. They can then take their box home and start recycling again! Together we can make a real difference to the planet.

Thank you for your support

Earth Hour 2018

Earth Hour this year takes place on Saturday 24th March at 8:30pm.

We will be showing our commitment as a school to Earth Hour on Friday afternoon, between 2 – 3pm by turning off our classroom lights and electronic appliances.

As a Platinum Eco School we are always keen to raise awareness of climate change to help protect our planet’s future.

Please support us in this worthy worldwide campaign.
