Earth Week 2022

Wowee! What a busy week it has been celebrating our wonderful planet!

The theme this year was Positive Action, and there were certainly a huge number of positive actions taking place across the school all week. The Reception children did a fantastic job of weeding and tidying the area down towards the bike storage to get it ready for planting. Thanks to the Woodland Trust, we now have a damson, pear and apple tree growing there, and there are plans to grow herbs and vegetables!

Year 6 attended a thought provoking workshop with Dr Verity Jones from UWE focusing on the issue of fast fashion. The Year 6 pupils found out more about where our clothes come from and everyone had the opportunity to sew on a button on to a piece of fabric. 

Years 3, 4 and 5 got busy walking and counting their steps with the Pedometer Challenge from Bristol City Council, and Year 4 also looked at ways they could save water.

Year 2 created some amazing posters and artwork stating the actions that they will take to have a positive impact on the planet.

Unfortunately, due to the school closure for Storm Eunice, we had to postpone both the non-uniform day and a visit from the Author Sara Louisa who had planned to read her beautiful book 'Bettie Honeybee' to the Reception and KS1 classes, however we are hoping we can re-schedule these for Term 4.


Earth Week 2021

Taking place across Cathedral Schools Trust, Earth Week aims to shine a light on positive environmental news stories and positive steps we can all take to look after our planet.

We're joining up with The Climate Coalition's #showthelove campaign to highlight all the things we love about our Earth.

The children are busy making green hearts at home and in school to display in their windows!
