Eco Action

Earth & Recycle symbolAt Barton School we are trying to save energy, recycle, and improve our school grounds. Our school has now achieved the Silver Award of the Eco Schools programme.

We have a new raised bed the Under 5s’ garden, in which we have put some pretty bedding plants and some herbs. We have lots more herbs to plant over the summer. We also planted poppy and sunflower seeds and these are starting to grow.

Thank you to the Barton Gardeners for providing us with lots of plug plants. We have planted the vegetables – some broccoli and cauliflower. We also planted some carrot seeds, chard and radishes. In a couple of weeks, when all danger of frost is past, we will plant the annuals. We have some Lobelia, Alyssum, Geraniums and Begonias to put in pots and hanging baskets.

 

HedgehogDuring the last week of term, some of our pupils helped staff from Shepreth Hedgehog Hospital to release six hedgehogs in an area behind the church. A reporter from the Cambridge News came along to watch, and we are delighted that the hedgehog release has been featured in one of their slideshows this week (click here to open the Cambridge News page in a new window).
