On Thursday 9th February, our St. Mark’s Eco councillors had an amazing afternoon birdwatching and exploring Hanley Park. They all agreed that it was great to get out into their local area and experience the wonders of nature. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful place to visit on our doorstep. The children were great role models and did us proud as always.
The Eco Council had a great time at Hanley Park planting bulbs. Clair, the Park Liaison Officer, talked to them about how planting is important to our eco system. They planted bluebells, wood anemone, snowdrops, winter aconite and wild daffodils. Go down to the park in the late spring to see the flourishes of flowers they have planted.
And this is what they will look like…
In October, our Year 6 School Councillors met together with other school councillors from the Seven Stars network. The group played team games and shared their thoughts on what activities could be done in the schools to promote anti-bulling. The group did an amazing job in planning what the Seven Stars schools would do during anti-bullying week. They even wrote their own rap! Look out for the music video on our website in the spring term!
