Bolivia Day
As part of our ongoing Green Flag work we decided to host a Bolivia Day. Bolivia is the country that our World Vision sponsored child comes from so we wanted to support this as well as find out a bit more about where she comes from.
We all had a non uniform day that involved wearing at least one colour from the Bolivian flag, each class looked at a different aspect of |Bolivia, we had an assembly where we watched a video from Noelia and catering services provided a special lunch with Bolivian music, Bolivian flags and a taster table with Spanish food. The children loved it and even went back for seconds!
We raised an amazing £163.20 for Noelia.
Year 4 Reverse Eco Advent
 
This year, Year 4 decided to create a reverse Eco Advent Calendar. Here are some photos of the litter pick that we did. We have also banned iPads for a day, brought yogurt pots for use in the greenhouse, turned off classroom lights and banned Mrs Cairns from using the interactive whiteboard for a day!

 

Year 4 went to visit their Reception buddies to talk to them about the Eco work in the school.

We explained about our reverse Eco Advent Calendar.

April 2019 - Sponsored Noelia for a 2nd Year

We are proud to announce that we raised enough money to successfully sponsor Noelia and her community for a 2nd year. Noelia has been corresponding with the CPFS Green Ambassadors and we have enjoyed sharing her pictures and letters during our Eco Assemblies. 

October 2018 - Coquet Park Eco Day 

We had a fantastic Eco Day on Friday 5th October!

We all turned our classroom lights off and didn't switch the computers on all day. Even though the weather was terrible, we had great fun!

Every class had a practical maths lesson as well as learning about Eco issues. We also made crafts for Harvest which we will sell in a few weeks time.

We had an assembly from Charlotte at Wash, Squash and Recycle and we learnt about what we can and can't recycle in our bins at home. Later in the day we had the grand opening of our Eco Greenhouse by the Rotary Club in Whitley Bay.

Here are some photos of the day.

Eco Day - Year 1

The children in Year 1 learnt about bar modelling using hula hoops. Later they designed, created and made litter pickers. They also took part in a litter pick around school.

Eco Day - Year 2

The children in Year 2 had a maths lesson where they used twigs and stones to create place value pictures. They looked at ways to save water as well as making biscuits that they sold during the grand opening of the greenhouse

Eco Day - Year 3

The children in Year 3 estimated and measured objects from the environment. They also thought about how to recycle and created recycle posters for our school bins.

Eco Day - Year 4

The children in Year 4 created life sized coordinates grids to learn about how to plot points on a coordinate. They also looked at ways to save electricity and up-cycled tin cans into vases to sell at our Harvest festival.
