Welcome to St. Barnabas C.E. Primary School

Year 5 Environmental Project

Throughout the year, children in Year 5 are taking part in our new school Environmental Project.

This involves looking at the9 Eco Schools topics and working on our new school allotment in Green Lane.

The children will be working in groups of 10 for a 6 week block each.

Group 1 - 'Care for Wildlife'

Group 1 chose the topic Wildlife and Biodiversity as their focus.

They had a great time looking at insects and wildlife in our school grounds.

They made fabulous bird feeders and a hibernaculum for our wildlife!

Group 2 - 'The Eco Warriors'

Group 2 chose the topic Waste and Recycling as their focus.

We went litter picking, planted garlic, looked at food waste in our kitchens and made calendars and bookmarks from waste card  and pressed leaves.

We sold these at the Christmas Fayre.

Watch the progress on our new school allotment.

Some great Home Learning and Science Experiments in Class.

Group 1 started clearing the overgrowth and sorting out!
Group 2 cleared more and planted garlic.

Group 3 - 'The Sustainables'

Group 3 chose the topics Energy and School Grounds as their focus.
