The Wood of Hope

We have been helping to plant trees for our ‘Wood of Hope’.
We have 9 large trees and over 100 saplings that we are going to plant over the next 9 school days.

“The Wood of Hope” will allow the children to plant a tree together with their friends, care for and watch it grow as they themselves grow. It will be a life-long legacy for them! This small area of woodland on our school site will be a remembrance of this time in our children’s lives but also will remind them of their strength and resilience as the world recovers from this period.

We have been extremely busy during Waste Week (8th – 14th March 2021). Look at the amazing things we have been doing to look after our school and the planet!

The children in the key worker group took part in the RSPB Big Schools’ Birdwatch 2021 to help scientists monitor the state of the environment. Here is our certificate of participation and a graph of the top ten birds observed in the school grounds.

We have been celebrating Chinese New Year in style during lockdown! We watched a video to learn about Chinese New Year to gain an insight into the celebration and culture and to look at the similarities and differences between Chinese New Year and the events which we celebrate.

Hedgehog Class have got involved with the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2021 this year during lockdown by identifying and counting birds, drawing birds and making bird feeders. The data collected will be submitted to the RSPB to help scientists gain an insight to the current state of the environment and look for trends within different species of birds.

We took part in Switch Off Fortnight in November to help to reduce energy being wasted in our school. We made posters to remind people to switch off computers and lights if not in use and submitted our data on ‘The Pod’.

The Eco Council have been busy making bird feeders to ensure the birds have plenty to eat now the weather is getting colder.

The Eco Council took part in the ‘What’s Under Your Feet?’ Campaign in October. The data collected will help scientists monitor the quality of soil and how this affects the food chain.


Due to current circumstances and having to remain in class bubbles, the Eco-Council for 2020-2021 will be Hedgehog class.

A different selection of children will take part in activities and feedback to the rest of the Hedgehog Class.

The Eco-Council will ensure the rest of Clover Hill are updated with regards to ongoing campaigns / events.
