Knowle Green enjoy Eco-Week following awards victory

Knowle Green Eco Week

Festivities were well underway at Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines as children and colleagues celebrated earning another eco-accreditation with a themed week at the setting.

Having received the prestigious Green Flag with Distinction, the highest accolade in the international Eco-Schools scheme, pre-schoolers were delighted to be immersed in a special Eco-Week, filled with activities including planting seasonal vegetables in the allotment area outside and learning how to tend to their crops, which will then be used in nursery meals.

After reading the story of ‘Harry and the Big Clean Up’, a storybook written by Childbase Partnership colleagues and provided as a free gift to every nursery child, pre-schoolers spoke about the impact of littering on animals and the environment, before taking to the grounds of the setting with their litter pickers to collect and dispose of any rubbish.

As part of the activities, children ventured to the woodland area outside, where they collected sticks and other natural resources to experiment with during mark making sessions, as well as to be used in crafting activities including collage making.

Knowle Green Day Nursery Manager, Chanelle Weaver explained;

“Over the past year, our pre-schoolers have shown immense dedication and passion for taking care of our planet. They have learned about recycling, conserving energy, healthy living and the importance of global citizenship. They have been actively involved in various eco-friendly projects, both at school and home and this was the perfect way to celebrate.”
