The largest part of ecoACTIVE’s work consists of pupil workshops, and our cross-curricular sessions are suitable for pupils across a wide age range, from Early Years & Foundation up to Key Stage 4. The practical workshops, assemblies or longer term projects feed into science, geography, maths, writing, art and other curriculum areas and cover themes including waste and recycling, composting, energy and climate change or water conservation.
“I can’t rave about them enough. They are brilliant from a teacher’s view point – very teacher friendly. The materials are all suitable and relevant and ready to go at school.”
We can look at food, wildlife and habitats by making and managing gardens with staff and pupils, or set up a green team to take on the job of making your school a more sustainable place. And we can work with after-school or holiday clubs, groups with special needs or nurseries, having fun and being creative while learning more about our environment.
As well as classroom workshops we also offer projects for green teams and school councils, assemblies, staff training and parent events.
All of our activities are designed to complement the Sustainable Schools initiative, the Eco-School’s award scheme, Healthy Schools objectives and the requirements of Every Child Matters. They can include INSET and other training sessions for teachers and school staff (bursars, site managers, kitchen staff etc.) as well as coffee mornings or other social events which draw in parents and other members of your school community.
