The Eco club are also responsible for running an Eco week. Here are some details from Eco Week.
The Colby ECO team was keen to join Norfolks Recycling Revolution'. Zaranne (Head of ECO) lead her team in organising a busy week filled with fun activities that raised awareness of environmental issues.
Throughout the week the team monitored energy use in all the classrooms, looking out for open windows and doors, and for any electric equipment being left on when not in use. Zaranne and her team also held daily recycling assemblies for each class, sorting household waste according to Norfolks new recycling plan. These assemblies were very informative and engaging for children from Reception age to year 6.
Zaranne and her team felt that it was very important that the schools youngest members become more aware of the school environment and how it can offer a safe habitat for many plants and animals. They organised a nature walk and treasure hunt for groups of Amber class children. The teaching staff at school were amazed how capable the ECO team was in carefully guiding and supervising such young children during this activity; Zaranne in particular showed great leadership not just during the nature walk but throughout the whole weeks events.
Eco week finished with Green Dressing up Day on Friday with the aim to raise funds for a Woodland Trust forest planted in the memory of WW1 soldiers. The school dedicated a tree in this new woodland which will hopefully provide a clean and safe home for many more plants and animals.
A great week for all well done Zaranne and the ECO team!
