At Chapel Break we are driven by the children's passion to look after their environment. As a result, we have established a group of Eco-warriors to lead all environmental projects in the school.
Last year Year 2 explored deforestation. Why do we need trees? The children were able to comprehensively explain the impact that deforestation has on our planet in assembly.
Last Christmas our Presentation of Learning was to produce environmentally friendly items for sale at our Christmas Market. We also invited representatives from Norfolk County Council recycling department to visit our 'Scrunch test' stall. This informed parents about testing materials to see if they could be recycled.
We received the following email
I want to thank you for inviting me to your Christmas fair. I was so impressed with what the children have achieved. I have shared the pictures with our elected members from across Norfolk, who each echo my thoughts.
Anything I can help with in the future, please do reach out.
I wish you a restful festive break.

We also launched our own Generation Earthshot '22 competition. Generation Earthshot aims to inspire children and young people to join in this mission by nurturing the innate creativity of young people and channelling it toward solving our biggest environmental challenges.
Our school Eco Warriors have set the challenge
“Can you make a difference?”
Children can win the Chapel Break Earth Shot Prize (half a day of forest school during the summer term)
Earth Shot Prize’
So many children were busy looking after the environment during the Easter holidays that the Eco Warriors had a really tough job of deciding the winners. They decided that these children will join them for half a day of forest school, as they had been cleaning litter from the beach, recycling and remembering to switch off the lights.
