A very successful 'Green' week
In term 6 we embarked on a very exciting 'Green Week' where each class focused on one of the nine Eco Schools topics. There was an on going focus on energy, with pupils monitoring energy efficiency throughout the week. Pupils completed case studies, zooming in on other cultures and countries linking these to the nine topic areas. There was a whole school reduce, reuse, recycle challenge where classes where invited to gather as much recyclable materials as they could during the week and use them to create a model. We then presented our models in a whole school assembly at the end of the week and they were judged by members of the eco committee.
We are very proud and pleased to announce that the school came 2nd in the Kent Life 'Garden of the Year' competition. Three pupils, along with Mrs Bullen and Mrs Berrington, attended the award ceremony at Hadlow College.
Mrs Bullen works hard with many of the children to keep the school gardens looking lovely all of the year round.
Congratulations to all of the Eco-Warriors and children at Ospringe School for achieving our Silver Eco-Schools award! During a recent assembly the team shared their action plan and how they achieved the award with the whole school.
Also congratulation to year 3 and 5 pupils who took part in the 'Beat the Flood'challenge. They built a waterproof structure and they then tested them.

We also have an Eco Garden at our school where we grow plants to attract insects and birds.
