Y6 Eco Council

Children in Eco Council have working in the community with Nailsea Town Council and North Somerset Council. They have had a busy morning removing plastic tree guards and weeding around re-wilding areas in Nailsea.

The Big Plastic Count 16-22 May 2022

The Y6 Eco Council would really like all Golden Valley families to be involved in the 'Big Plastic Count'. Watch the video to learn more about why we are doing this. 

Every pupil has a Plastic count sheet to fill in next week (16-22 May) and return to school. We will be collecting the results in school so there is no need to add your own information to the website.

Thank you for helping us.

The Y6 Eco Council

Update with our Application to become Young Tree Champions

On behalf of the school, we have been successful in becoming Young Tree Champions with the Tree Council.
At the beginning of March, we will be receiving 5-7 broadleaf trees to plant in the school grounds.

Update Jan 2022

Two members of our group wrote to John Lewis complaining about the amount of plastic packaging that was used to deliver a small diary to Mrs. Bennett. We have attached the letter that was written and the reply from John Lewis so that you can read them.

 

We have written to North Somerset Council who are able to provide trees for our school  grounds. We have also contacted a tree project who may be able to provide hedgerow plants for us as well.

 

We are investigating crisp packet re-cycling and are researching worm farms.

Here is the latest school's challenge slide. It is all about reducing our energy use and has some links that you may want to explore.

Here is the first challenge slide for the new year from the Young Climate Warriors. Remember that every little helps to save our planet so read the slide and think what you can do to help.
