Eco News: new arrivals

Fw__Eco_news__new_arrivals We have new arrivals on the school site this week: a family of great tits. We have spotted a pair of birds coming in and out of the nestbox by the community room recently. On investigating, we found five very hungry looking chicks. It looks like they have lined their next with wool, possibly from the sheep wool hangers made by our Eco Club. We will keep you updated with their progress.

  All Year 1 children spent a day in our outside environment participating in a number of outdoor activities including digging in the allotment, creating leaf art and fire safety (with the bonfire).  Children really enjoyed the hands on approach to their learning (especially eating the tasty hot dogs, fresh from the bonfire). Well done Year 1      ...
ECO Diwali Lanterns

ECO Diwali Lanterns

Our ECO Warriors welcomed a lovely artist called Sarah into school yesterday.  After showing then some of the beautiful flowers she had created from recycled materials (bottles and cans) our ECO Warriors enjoyed creating their own Diwali lanterns made from recycled 4 pt milk cartons they had collected. The children worked really hard and produced some fabulous lanterns.  They each added a battery operated tea light, turned off the lights and thoroughly enjoyed seeing their lanterns light up the darkened room. Well done ECO Warriors. Sarah also told the children about Nottingham City Council’s Light Night celebrations which are taking place on Friday 5 February 2015 ...
Eco Warriors Decorate Farndon Green

Eco Warriors Decorate Farndon Green

Pauline Dorey, Neighbourhood Development Officer recently approached Middleton to ask if our children would like to decorate a new Christmas tree at Farndon Green. Middleton ECO Warriors took up the challenge, spending one lunchtime making beautiful Christmas decorations using natural resources found on our school site as well as other materials found in school. On Friday 4 December our ECO Warriors headed off in the wonderful sunshine to visit the site.  They had made so many fabulous decorations that, not only did they decorate the tree, they decorated the whole of Farndon Green! We would like to say a special thank you to the parents who came along to enjoy this event and hope many residents enjoy our children’s wonderful creations. Well done ECO Warriors...
