Healthy and Sustainable School

Welcome to Regina Coeli’s Sustainability page.

Another busy start to our sustainability year.

As part of our school travel plan to promote active and sustainable travel children in year 6 and year 5 have been on Bikeability training courses, showing them how to ride their bikes safely and responsibly on the road. 

Reception have all taken part in Balance Bike training., and in year 1 and year 2 everyone has joined in with scooter training. 

Regina Coeli’s Walking Bears are still travelling around the infant classes. Mrs Bethany and little Rosie Bear go home with a different child each night. They share the children’s journeys to and from school. The children tell of their adventures together in a journal explaining how they have taught the bears to take part in active travel and whilst staying safe on their trips. 

It will soon be time to start growing in our new greenhouse on the allotment area. Every year group has a flower bed to use. Everyone will be involved in growing projects throughout the summer months. A new school competition is about to be launched to see which class can earn the title of “Champion Beanstalk Growers”. A trophy for the winners, but watch out for lurking giants! 

The better weather will mean that we can start to use the Forest School and pond areas again. Useful for all sorts of out door activities. Not forgetting the new living willow structure that will need to be investigated. 

Garden club will soon be flexing their green fingers, hoping to grow lots of produce to share at our now famous “potato party” and sell at the Croydon’s Schools Market in July. 

All we need now is some sunshine.
