Eco Warriors 2018/ 2019
Following class elections, the school now has ten new Eco Warriors. We have had our first meeting and a list of meeting dates will be posted for Autumn 2 on this page and on the new Eco display in main school.
Staff are looking forward to lots of exciting sustainable activities with the new Eco Warriors.
Warriors - March 2018. You will be soon be receiving some notes regarding our current work. Please read and jot down any ideas. Drop off your written comments to Mrs. Parsons in the nursery building (Thursday/ Friday) or ask your teacher to pop them into the workroom for me.

Thank You..... to all the families who entered our hugely successful Awe, Wonder and Wellbeing competition. We have two beautiful display areas in the school relating to this work.
Please enjoy the following photographs relating to this work.
Whole School Competition (Nursery-Year 6)
Key Dates: Competition ends FRIDAY 8TH DECEMBER 2017
Prizes will be judged by Mrs. Markham and Miss. Shaw. Prizes will be handed out by Mrs. Markham week beginning Monday 11th December (1 prize per class)
Entry Details: Ask your child to create their own masterpiece to reflect something that has brought them awe. Tap into their talents using drawing, photography, painting, sculpture or collage.
Masterpiece Size: This work will be displayed in the school's hall. Recommended size approximately A5 to A4 size for 2D entries. 3D work to be displayed on units in the hall and/or corridor units.
Helpful Pointers: 'Awe' can give you goose bumps, make you feel calm or have a sense of wonder and well being. Choose from: nature, urban (skyscrapers, bridges), indoor (aquariums, cathedrals etc), science, audio (poetry, heroes/ heroines). Younger children: rainbows, fireworks, shells, butterflies, holiday destinations. These are only a few suggestions. Please use your own ideas too.
Remember the deadlines and hand in your work to your teacher. Lots of luck, The Eco Warriors and Mrs. Parsons
Whole School Workshops Autumn One Term 2017
A big thank you to all the workshop providers who visited Well Green week beginning Monday 2nd October. Every class from Reception to Year Six participated in activities relating to sustainability. Staff and children have thoroughly enjoyed these worthwhile sessions. Workshop providers were: Lucinda Hodges from Phoenix Spirit, Emma Houghton from Bollin Valley and David Rome with his many resources to extract honey from a honeycomb. Fabulous!
Sharston Recycling Trip with the 2016-2017 Eco Warriors.
Following this excellent trip (please see photographs), the Warriors are helping the school to evaluate and improve our waste and recycling behaviour. The Warriors are leading a school assembly based on their trip.
Would you like to make a book sculpture?
After enjoying a book, why not turn it into something beautiful? A book sculpture is a relaxing activity and lots of fun to make.
Some of Well Green's Eco Warriors have created a video to help you understand how to make a hedgehog book sculpture. Perhaps you could create leaves for your hog out of newspaper or other recycled paper.
The Warriors are busy preparing a new display for the main corridor, a whole school assembly and some book sculptures for around the school.
Below are some of the photographs we took at the last meeting (12/1/16) to encourage the school to behave in a sustainable way. These pictures reinforce our school's Eco Motto: 'Many little things done by many little people change the big, wide world.'
Education in sustainability enables pupils to develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and values to participate in decisions about the way we do things individually and collectively, both locally and globally, that will improve the quality of life now without damaging the planet for the future.
