Welcome to our Haydn Eco Team!
Each class, from Year 1 to Year 6, has nominated two children to represent them in our Eco Team. We meet regularly to discuss how to make Haydn a greener school.
If you have any ideas, please speak to one of your class Eco Teamers!
Keep checking this page for updates on our work!
Here is (most) of our Eco Team.
Severn Trent Meeting - 13.03.17
Today, the whole school enjoyed an assembly about water efficiency with Helen from Severn Trent Water. Afterwards, she met with our Eco Team to discuss how we could become more water efficient as a whole school and at home. The Eco Team (and Mrs Crawford!) are very excited to become Water Reporters! We will be surveying Haydn to see just how efficient we currently are!

Onion update! - 27.01.16
Four of our eco teamers replanted our onions into bigger pots today and they're still going strong. Fingers crossed!
Meeting - 16.01.17
Today, we gathered together our Sharing Sherwood posters ready for us to display around our playgrounds. Felicity and Toby are also busy revamping our recycling bin labels for every classroom.
Meeting - 13.12.16
Following the success of our recycling art project with Anna Roebuck, the eco team are very excited to be growing onions for the Sharing Sherwood social eating project. Cam and Lillian got very messy planting our first batch!
Meeting - 06.12.16
Today, we discussed how we could get involved with the social eating group, Sharing Sherwood. We all understood that projects like this one help reduce out impact on the world and, as Poppy in Year 1 explained, if Sharing Sherwood wasn't around, "Food would be wasted."
Our Eco Team came up with some excellent ideas about hoe we could promote and help the group.
Watch this space!
If you'd like to find out more about Sharing Sherwood, in the meantime, ask your adult to search for them on social media.
First Meeting - 14.11.16
At our first meeting, we discussed what "eco" meant to us. We came up with some amazing ideas!
"Eco means taking care of the environment" - Alfie, Year 5.
Environment can mean the area around you and the whole world - Lillian, Year 4, and Toby, Year 6.
"Look after our world; we haven't got another" - Dan, Year 2.
Tom, in Year 1, and Frank, in Year 5, both agreed that "eco" also means working together and helping one another.
Over the next few weeks, we plan to take part in a recycling art project and a competition to conserve the local hedgehog population!
