Eco Council Members have been hard at work researching what kinds of plant we should be looking to plant in and around our pond. Three of the members who had undertaken this research visited Ashton Hall Garden Centre and purchased a few plants to get us started. These included a water lily, water hawthorn and some pond weed. They are pictured below with our plants.
We seem to have two very hungry newts living in the pond who we think may have eaten the frogspawn we put in there earlier in the Spring.
We have made our selection
Ready to pay.
Members of the Eco Council came ready and dressed to move the water left in the bottom of the old pond into containers ready to be put back into the new pond. We worked hard to empty out as much as we could.
Eco Council are really looking forward to building up the pond and making it into a lovely habitat after half-term.
We have an Eco Council in school made up of representatives from each class from Year 1 upwards to help drive our work on improving our environment, improving our sustainability and thinking of our impact on the world. We always have a great response with many children putting themselves forward to be Eco Councillors.
