What a wonderful half term we have had back in school! Despite Eco-meetings still having to be held socially distanced the members have persevered to make changes to care forthe place ourSchool takes upon the planet. Eco-Committee wouldn’t run without Mrs Scott’s help – thank you!
This half term the Eco-Committee have:
Launched a sunflower competition with the support of Morrison’s in Malton.Nature’s top pollinators are bees, and sunflowers’ showy outer petals draw many different species, including honeybees and bumble bees, to the high-quality nectar. The bees are quite likely to pollinate other plants during their stay. The pretty flowers also bring birds to eat the sunflower seeds. Not only do wild birds add song and movement to a garden, but they also polish off a few insects while they are there, insects that might otherwise hurt your crops. Sunflower seeds can limit weeds. Their seeds contain a chemical that other plants don’t like.
