Eco Rangers

Welcome to our Eco Rangers Page. Our team of Eco-friendly pupils are responsible for promoting lots of ways to save energy at school and to help our environment. They work as a team, under the guidance of Mrs Yeoman, Mrs Godfrey and Mr Atkinson, to set challenges and targets for the school in it's bid to be a successful 'Eco School'

We have been busy planting: lettuce, tomatoes, pumpkin and radish, hopefully we will have a bumper crop to sell to our parents.

The Eco Team had a great day at Howsham Mill learning about renewable energy. We watched the water wheel generating electricity for the local village, we then got chance to make our own. After lunch the team took part in a forestry schools afternoon which included; building a fire, toasting marshmallows on the fire and den building. We all had a great time.

Thursday 26th November. Today the Eco Team visited Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate. We had great fun learning about renewable energy and how to save energy in school and at home.

Greatwood ECO Code 1

Here is our Greatwood ECO code. Following a series of assemblies linked to developing a school ECO code, lots of children entered our special competition to come up with the best messages. The winner was Faith in Year 5, whose combination of clever writing as well as great illustrations, resulted in a winning entry.  

Eco Poster Design Competition

Here are the some of the finalists from our recent Eco Poster competition. We had some wonderful designs all of which will be used around the school as reminders to all children and staff about switching off to save energy. Well done to everyone who entered the competition.
