James Lee Nursery School

What is Eco- Schools?

Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world. It raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and also creates financial savings for schools. It also engages the wider local community and makes links to the curriculum.

 

The children and staff at James Lee have been working towards maintaining our Green Flag award which we achieved in May 2017 and are due to renew our application to keep our Green flag in May this year.

 

You can find more information about Eco Schools at https://www.eco-schools.org.uk/

 

Our Eco Committee

We have an Eco-Committee that consisting of children, parents and staff that meets at least once a term to improve the nursery environment and develop children's awareness and understanding of environmental issues. 

The children have completed an Environmental Review of the nursery which covers all of the the Eco-Schools 10 topics: energy, litter, waste/recycling, water, transport, healthy living, bio-diversity, school grounds, global citizenship and marine. This will enable the Eco-committee to develop an action plan and work towards achieving its goals.

 

Reducing Energy

In November the nursery children took part in “Switch off Fortnight". The whole nursery has been involved in turning off unnecessary lights and electrical equipment and parents were encouraged to take part at home. 

Recycling

Groups of children and staff have been to visit the Wandsworth Recycling Centre. This trip gives an introduction into Recycling for the children, and is also very thought provoking or the adults.

We have set up a small Recycling box in reception for batteries (please make sure they are not leaking), ink cartridges and ink toners.

 

Big Schools Bird Watch 2020

The children have been taking part in the 'Big School Bird Watch' over the past couple of weeks. They have been developing their skills in waiting patiently and using their binoculars to spot, count and record the birds in our nursery garden. When we have finished collecting our data, we will upload our results on the RSPB website. If you are interested in taking part at home please find more information on https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch/
