Switch Off Fortnight

We have spent the past two weeks joining in with 'Switch Off Fortnight' as part of our efforts to help children understand the importance of saving energy.  We have had all the lights and computers off this morning to show how much we rely on them and to see how much energy we could save. We are aiming for the Eco-Schools 'Green Flag' award this year and this month is energy month.  To achieve the award we have to find out about energy and how to save it and identify other areas of the school that we can improve environmentally.  Our action plan is below and on our Curriculum page here http://www.springfield-inf.suffolk.sch.uk/eco-schools/ so that you can see our plans for the year. See if you can save energy at home.  Can you turn off unused lighting and electrical equipment?  Can you survive a day without your laptop or Xbox?
