School Grounds #EcoSchoolsAtHome Frugi 10 day challenge

We understand that some of you may not have been in school since March and others may have been back in school for a few weeks, but with things feeling very different. Over the past few months, parents have been home-schooling and our fantastic teachers have been adapting and working as best they can (maybe whilst home-schooling their own families too). We are still not sure what the next academic year will bring, but with day seven of the Frugi 10 day topic challenge for #EcoSchoolsAtHome we want to help everyone create positive personal message for their future eco-selves to read when they are back in their School Grounds. With this challenge, we are delighted to announce our third and final amazing competition of the #EcoSchoolsAtHome Frugi 10 day challenge! To find out more about winning a fab Frugi back to school kit download our School Grounds #EcoSchoolsAtHome Challenge and check out the terms and conditions below!

When you do return to school in September, why not try one of these School Ground topic actions as part of your Eco-Schools work:

  1. School Grounds is our most popular topic as it can be linked to so many of our other Eco-Schools topics. You could link to Biodiversity by growing pollinator friendly plants; link to Healthy Living by growing fruit and veg or link to Water by installing water butts and hippos!
  2. Some schools are not lucky enough to have lots of outdoor space, so they are especially creative and think about how to bring the outdoors indoors: plants for every classroom, window boxes and vertical planting. Head over to our Eco-Schools Pinterest account to find lots of interesting ways to maximise the space you have.
  3. Utilise your school’s grounds in your school’s curriculum (no matter how much, or little, space you have). Ask teaching staff how they could use your school grounds as a teaching resources: can music be made using nature? can a tree or insect inspire a piece of written work? Make outdoor curriculum the norm by challenging all teachers to carry out 3-4 outdoor lessons every term then build upon this year on year. Don’t forget to ask you students, they will have ideas for curriculum links too!
