EYFS Composting Champions

This week, Nursery, Reception and the two year old nursery, took part in "Composting Champions " workshops with Emma Ray from ‘Shanks’ who provide reuse and recycling workshops on behalf of Derby City Council. The children learned all about how to make the perfect compost mix and started to use the school’s new composter which is situated in the forest.
