This week in school we have had Eco week. All the classes have had a lesson on plastic waste, which links into our whole school target of reducing single use plastic.
Classes have taken part in a 'Trash mob' collecting rubbish from the school grounds and surrounding areas, including Apex park.
Some classes have also taken part in a special homework creating eco bricks out of non-recyclable materials.

Results of the Eco survey
On Friday 20th April, in preparation for Earth day on the 22nd April, Churchfield school had it's very own Earth hour.
Between 2 and 3 pm all classes turned off the lights, lap tops and went paper free to raise awareness of how much we actually use in school.
Every class then did their own exciting activities around the theme of reducing plastic pollution.
Some classes made planters out of old plastic bottles, others made pictures of sea creatures from natural materials and one year group even made an obstacle course from recycled materials.
The whole school really enjoyed doing our bit and the children are now much more aware of the plastic problem facing our planet.
Read all about the amazing work Churchfield children are doing as they launch their EcoSchools Committee and focus on making the school a plastic free environment.
