Green Team
Everyone has been thinking their impact on the environment. Classes are more aware of saving energy and turning lights and electrical devices off when they are not in the room, also recycling paper and using it as draft or scrap paper. The ‘Green Team’, which consists of a member from each class across KS2, check classrooms every day and each week the totals of ‘green’ tokens are counted up. Congratulations to all the year 5 classes and Stoat class, who all gained the maximum number of tokens.
