Eco week 2024

Green Heroes: Kingsbury Academy learners take on Eco Week 2024

Excitement filled the air at Kingsbury Academy this week as students embraced the spirit of environmental conservation during the much-anticipated Eco Week celebrations. With a flurry of green-themed activities and initiatives, Eco Week served as a rallying cry for our youngest learners to become stewards of the planet.

Hands-on learning took centre stage throughout the week, with learners rolling up their sleeves to get involved in various eco-friendly projects. From planting trees with the National trust, to planting in class and reading stories like 'Clean up!' by Nathan Byron. Learners also made some fantastic bird feeders and bug hotels for all of the insects and minibeasts of Coventry to attend. 

One of the highlights of Eco Week was the "Rubbish to Reuse" challenge, where learners in KS1 collected, matched and sorted recyclable materials including crisp packets. That were then donated to a local collector in Coventry who uses the crisp packets to make foil blankets for the homeless. 

Furthermore, Eco Week equips learners with a sense of responsibility and empowerment, empowering them to take action both at school and beyond. Through initiatives such as litter clean-up and bug hotel competitions, learners are actively engaged in efforts to promote a cleaner, greener environment. By instilling a sense of ownership and pride in their surroundings, Eco Week empowered learners to become advocates for positive change.
