Our Learning

Eco Council

Autumn Term 2021

The Eco team is made up of children from Red Area, Blue Area and Green Area. The team are a group of extremely hard working children, who are eager to continually help our school to become even more environmentally friendly. We were awarded ‘Green Flag’ status for the sixth time in 2021 and are proud of our achievements.  

Why did you want to be in the Eco Team?

  • “I think it will be good to think about how to look after our school better.” Daisy-Mae
  • “I wanted to be in the Eco Team because I think that it is important to think about how to care for our planet.” Eva-Mae
  • “I will think of ideas about how to make Barrs Court even better. I love our moat area and there are lots of animals there to look after!” Lola

Our ECO team:

  • Red area – Brody, Daisy-Mae, Felicity
  • Blue area – Declan, Lola, Freya 
  • Green area – Robbie, Brooke, Luke, Phoebe, Finley and Eva-Mae

What have the Eco team been working on in the Autumn Term?

Children in each class who wanted to take on the role of an Eco Representative nominated themselves. Following this, a whole class vote took place. The Eco Team were very excited to receive their badges, which they wear with pride, so all members of the school community know who the Eco Team are. The Eco Team prepared a presentation to launch the first competition of the year – the Barrs Court Eco Code. The entries will be looked at very soon, and a winner will be announced! The winning ECO code will then be displayed around Barrs Court for everyone to see. The Eco Team have also worked on a collaborative project with the Cultural Ambassadors and decorated a water butt! A photograph of the end product was shared with Bristol Water. If you have any suggestions for how we could be more Eco friendly, please let us know! We love to hear new ideas.  

What has the ECO Team got planned next?

  • Develop our Action Plan for the year
  • Participate in Switch off Fortnight (monitoring electricity usage)
  • Encourage the use of recycling containers in every classroom.
  • Decide and announce the winner of the Barrs Court Eco Code

The Eco Team look forward to sharing their latest projects with you as the year progresses.
