Upton Cross Eco-Warriors
At Upton Cross, we have an Eco Team that is run for and by the children. Two representatives from each class are elected following their application to be an ‘Eco Warrior’. It is their job to take ideas from their classmates, discuss changes in our school and work with their own classes to make green changes.
The representatives meet every other week to discuss any projects or ideas they would like to take forward based on their own class discussions and ideas. The Eco Warriors will then carry out their projects with their classes over the year.
The Eco Team feedback their work to the rest of the school through class assemblies and through class discussions to ensure their ideas are implemented across the school and communication is consistent.
The Eco Team is a brand new role in our school, so this year we are really keen to work on green spaces on our school grounds and gain opportunities to learn about and put into action being more responsible for our planet.
