Wycliffe Prep School have been taking part in Ecoweek this week. Pupils across all year groups have been learning about what they can do to ensure a happy and healthy future for the planet.
Year 1 and Year 2 captured the beauty of the earth by making a stained glass planet earth in their art lessons. The results were stunning.
Years 6, 7 and 8 completed a litter pick around the school grounds. They collected litter and material that could be recycled and used in future lessons.
The ecowarriors planted trees at school by the forest school area. Each year group from Nursery through to Year 8, now has a new tree to cultivate and cherish. It was lovely to see the upper prep children helping their younger counterparts plant trees despite the rainy conditions. The tree planting culminated with the presentation and planting of a cherry tree for the Prep School headmaster, Adrian Palmer and his wife Julie to mark their time at Wycliffe.
Ecoweek week ended with pupils participating in Green Day. It was organised by two girls in Year 8 as part of their Kirby Challenge. Pupils paid £1 to come in non-school uniform. The only criteria was that they had to wear something green! The donations raised will go towards the schools eco-projects.
It has been an amazing week and fantastic to see the enthusiastic participation of all pupils across the school.
