ECO SCHOOLS

Our New Hedgerow

|

We have had a wonderful time planting our new hedgerow for school that was kindly donated by The Woodland Trust.  We hope this will encourage wildlife and help with our local environment.

Elderflower and Tulip

|

Kelbrook School has two lovely Hens - Elderflower and Tulip.

Each week our VIP's from each class take home the eggs to cook and eat!  They are tasked with taking a picture of whatever they make and sending it into school.  bursar@kelbrook.lancs.sch.uk

Laura from Class 4 has had a fantastic time making srummy things to eat from our eggs.  She got to take them home as she was VIP this week.  I even got to try a cupcake and it was delicious!

She also made a super lemon tart - tasty!

Mrs Dugdale got to take some eggs home this week too!  Look what Mrs Dugdale's daughter made!  She thought she was entering Mary Berry's Bake Off!

A Snowy Walking Bus Day

|

No matter the weather our walking bus will be running.  The children loved the walk in the snow and this saved parents bringing the cars up roads that aren't gritted.  A great idea all round!

Walking Bus

|

Our 'Walking Bus' walks to school three times a week.  We have a growing band of happy walkers who meet at the Church/village car park on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Our bus is supported by Governors, Staff, Kelbrook Friends Committee and Parents.  Why not come and join us to help us cut down on the amount of traffic around school, keep fit and help to save the environment!

Kelbrook Primary School produce at Harvest

|

Class 1 and class 2 have been picking and diging to help out at the Harvest festival.

 

Gardening

|

Mrs Hargreaves and Miss Hope with the help of Mrs Nichols (Governor) run a gardening club throughout the year. Children weed, plant, water and enjoy the school grown fruit and vegetables. Our produce is also cooked in our school kitchen and served as an addition to our menu.  We have also contributed to our Harvest charity donation.

Building the storage

|

To keep all the equipment and feed for our animals we built some storage boxes.

Ducks

|

During the Summer Term of 2015 we incubated and hatched 'Runner Duck' eggs.  They lived outside with our Chickens until January when they move home - they now live on a farm in Trawden.
