Children's Voices at Moreland

We value children's opinions at Moreland and there are a number of ways that children can contribute their ideas and opinions to school life. These include School Council, Eco Team and Digital Leaders. Children also elect a Head Boy and Head Girl and their Deputies every September.

 

 

Head Boy and Head Girl

 

Every September we hold our elections for Head Girl and Head Boy. Children in Year 6 who wish to stand each write a manifesto which they share with the school during an election assembly. All the children from Year 1 up and staff then get to vote at our Polling Station for the candidates they prefer. Children are taught about democracy and the electoral system of the UK as part of the election process.

READING BUDDIES

 

Collaboratively, members of the  School Council discussed reading at Moreland. They requested to have a ‘Reading Buddies’ scheme across the school. They offered the suggestion that children pair up and read together in small groups or trios. They asked if children in Years 4,5 and 6 could read with the younger children in years 1, 2 and 3.

Eco Team

Welcome to our Eco-Schools Journey.

 

What is Eco-Schools?

 

Eco-Schools was founded in 1994, operates in 67 countries and engages 19.5 million young people globally. This makes Eco-Schools the largest educational programme on the planet.

The Seven Step framework supports young people of all ages and abilities to work together to plan, deliver, monitor and evaluate environmental actions in their school. Participating in the programme:

  • Engages young people in important environmental issues.
  • Demonstrates to pupils that environmental actions can be enjoyable, social and rewarding.
  • Teaches responsibility and generates a sense of community.
  • Develops the skills and knowledge young people need to play an active role in protecting our environment now and throughout their lifetimes.
  • Empowers students with the belief that they have the ability to positively impact our planet.
  • Enables schools to green their entire curriculum.

The steps on our Eco Schools Journey.

 


 

Choose 3 Topics 

 

When creating an Action Plan, Eco-Committees choose three topics (five topics for those renewing an existing Eco-Schools Green Flag) to work on. Eco-Committees select the three (or five) topics they would like to work on from the Ten Eco-Schools topics below.

 

Step 1

Setting up an Eco Committee

 

Meet The Team

 

We have a committed Eco team with representatives from Years 1 to 6.

 

Year 1 Aya, Ricky, Anais and Lorenzo

Year 2 Eli, Hadjer, Kavanii and Saira

 

Year 3 Albie, Hadjir, Jayden and Kyra

Year 4 Eman and Treyvon

Year 5 Azra and Armaan

Year 6 Leshae and Ezel

 

We  meet regularly to monitor and review Eco issues at our school. 

 

 

Step 2

 

Environmental Review 

 

Lockdown Zoom Meetings 

 

We initially met via zoom during lockdown and we carried out our Environmental Review. It took a couple of meetings to complete and we had to ask our Head of School, Business Manager and Premises Manager to help us with some of it.

Designed to review our learning environment and provide inspiration for topics that we want to explore.

 

 Step 3 Choosing topics to focus on and beginning our Action Plan. 

Following our Environmental Review we we could see our strengths and areas for development, we used these along with our own experiences and observations to choose three topics to explore.

 

Areas of Interest

Litter

Biodiversity

Healthy Living

Global Citizenship 

Waste

School Grounds

 

We had a vote and chose:

Global Citizenship

Healthy Living 

School Grounds

 

We now have our Bronze Award!

 

 

Step 4 Curriculum Links 

 

We have found lots of  Eco school links to the curriculum. We have opportunities top learn about global and environmental issues. We have weekly Global Citizenship lessons and assemblies that focus on important world issues. 

We have found evidence of Eco School topics across the curriculum throughout the school from Early Years to Year 6. Please look at our PowerPoint.

Step 5 Informing and Involving 

 

The Eco team have an important role in sharing information with the rest of the school and wider community. 

We do this  by taking a lead in assemblies and having Eco meetings and presentations in class. 

Have a look at our Eco board, it is right next to the dining room and has a space for you to add any suggestions and ideas for projects or actions.
