Woodbank Primary School

Woody's Eco Warriors

Here at Woodbank, we have set up a brand new Eco - Council. Back in 2020 when the club was first formed, it was decided that the Eco-Council should have a name that reflects how they feel about making changes within school, our local community and our home environment. With this in mind, it was voted that the club should be named "Woody's Eco Warriors."

WORLD AWARENESS DAY

Friday 11th February 2022

Everyone in school enjoyed reading "Somebody Swallowed Stanley" by Sarah Roberts and illustrated by Hannah Peck. A tale of a plastic bag named Stanley who ended up on a journey in to the sea. 

I'll attach a link of Tom Hardy reading the book on CBeebies  below:

We had a lovely day with our Woody's Eco Warriors hosting an assembly for the school and a range of activities in class. This included recycling and repurposing a plastic bag into kites, bracelets and more, litter picking in the community and handing out our wildflower seed bombs made by our club members to promote bee friendly environments and some science activities on what products can be recycled. The children looked fantastic dressed in Green and Blue like our planet and we raised £176 towards our Eco pot for recycling bins. Thank you for your support! 

Mrs Howcroft 

Woody's Eco Warriors hosting a whole school assembly. These children only had 3 days to practice this due to Covid isolations and staffing. I am incredibly proud of their performance and hope you enjoy watching them too!

Maple Class learnt the chorus with Ms Madigan to Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror. A wonderful song that resonates about how changes are up to us to help the world a better place. They have worked hard and a fantastic job. Well done Maple!

Miss O'Brien visited children in Key Stage 1 and Early Years to ask them about what we can do to help change the planet.

What small things can we do to care for our planet? 

Turn off the lights when you're not in the room....

Gather and recycle your batteries...

Turn the taps off...

Feed the birds....

Go car free and walk to school....

DID YOU KNOW?

Woodbank has become a local Terracycle site to recycle items such as any brand of bread wrappers, crumpet/ wraps/ muffin packaging and Kinder Chocolate wrappers and items?

Please collect any of these items and drop off during our opening hours at reception, and a member of the Warriors will sort them out for you!
