Welcome to the 'Green team' sustainability blog!
Here you will find all the latest news on our sustainability projects, learning and ideas!
We are 10 days in to the wildlife trusts #30dayswild - so far I have seen children admiring the clouds, growing and smelling fresh herbs, walking barefoot on the grass, making bird feeders from recycled bottles, reading and drawing outside, playing nature bingo and more. Please keep sharing your ideas with us and keep it wild through June!

Today is 'World Ocean Day' - think about how we can protect our magnificent ocean. Recycle, buy re-usable bottles and packaging - try to create a collage of the ocean using some recycled materials eg. crisp packets, plastics, old magazines, bottle lids... then do some research about the ocean and add an important message to your collage. Today in Reception, the children are reading the story 'Tiddler the storytelling fish' and they will be watching the incredible short film 'Snail and the whale' on BBC iPlayer to learn a little about life in the ocean.

Today is world environment day - Ms. Gentry launched a competition to create a school poster about litter, the winner was Jaimey from Jade class, who is a current representative for Reception on the 'Green team'. We loved her message "Please put your rubbish in the right colour bin. Henry Green Primary School!" Well done! Don't forget, we would love to see some of your #30dayswild activities, photographs or learning too.
Have a wonderfully sustainable day!

Today is the start of the incredible Wildlife trusts '30 days wild' - where you are all invited to experience a random act of wildness for each day through the month of June. These could be standing barefoot in the grass, listening for wild sounds, reading a book about nature, eating a meal outside, drawing a plant or insect, making a bug hotel, planting a seed, smelling a herb, watching the clouds.. the list is endless! You can download the free 30 days wild app for ideas, or head to the website www.wildlifetrusts/30dayswild for a free printable pack of goodies! Enjoy a little moment of wild every day, and please share your pictures with us too #30dayswild
