Slinfold School are going to try and be really healthy for the next two weeks. Green Dragons have done a Walk to School worship to get everyone up and walking to school. They have reminded everyone about being kind to the environment, avoiding pollution and global warming. You can get fitter and have a good chat on your way to school when you walk!
On our 7 billion ideas day (16.9.16), we had the chance to come up with lots of brilliant ideas - things that would change the world we live in for the better.
Fantastic news.... so many of these ideas were eco-friendly; linked to bio-diversity, energy saving and sustainability, showing what a great green ethos there is at Slinfold. Green Dragons think that we are all very good at 'caring for God's planet' and being eco-friendly is definitely the way ahead.
From 2nd March - 24th June 2016 primary schools in West Sussex are competing to get the most people recycling plastic pots, tubs and trays at home.
See how you can register your plastic pot recycling at http://www.wastebuster.co.uk/spot-a-pot/
The school with the most people registering they have recycled a plastic pot, tub or tray at home will win class trip to the Ford Material Recycling Facility in West Sussex to find out what happens to the plastic when it is recycled.
It is really easy to do...... so get recycling now!
We are thrilled to announce that we will be getting a bee hive for our environmental area. This will be managed and controlled by Mrs Lesley Day and Mr Burrell. Mrs Day is a master bee keeper and lives in Slinfold. The idea is to get children involved in bee keeping and also to eventually produce our very own Slinfold School sweet honey.
Did you know we each throw away 23.5kg of e-waste every year? That’s more than an average seven-year-old boy weighs! But what should you do with your waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) when it’s no longer needed – and how can you cut the amount of e-waste you create in the first place?
Green Dragons will be telling you more about this in Worship!
