Green Gang

Hi!  We are The Green Gang.  After an assembly on climate change and looking after our world, we nominated ourselves to be part of the new Green Gang.  We nominated ourselves because we want to play our part in protecting and looking after our environment.


Welcome to our section of the website and here’s the gang:

Thomas and Poppy – Phoenix

Abigail and Maria – Pegasus 

Heslyn and Thomas – Dragons

Emilia and Eddy - Unicorns


1st November 2019

We started by finding out just how ‘green’ we already are at WIS.  We walked around the school looking for examples of how we are trying to care for and protect our environment.

We were quite impressed by what we found.  Here are some of our ‘green’ findings:

  • Most outside doors were shut
  • Taps in the toilets were turned off
  • Lots of green recycling bins for paper
  • Recycling batteries
  • Some lovely garden areas to attract pollinators
  • Lights turned off in some rooms that were not being used




We also looked at ways in which we could be ‘greener’:

  • Turn off the hall lights when it is not being used
  • Close ALL outside doors
  • Make sure we are not printing/photocopying sheets that are not being used
  • We could have more recycling bins as these get full quite quickly

We reflected on the ways in which we could be ‘greener’ at WIS and decided to make some posters to remind everyone to care for our school environment.




15th November 2019

We walked round the school and looked for good places to put up the posters.

Can you spot them around school?

Are people taking notice of them?

The Green Gang have entered the RHS Shows Schools' Competition.  ‚ÄčThis year, in a bid to raise awareness of biodiversity and native species decline, the focus of the Hampton Court Garden Festival schools' competition is on wildlife homes.

The Green Gang have all designed a wildlife home for insects and birds based on the theme of the Willesborough windmill.



Fingers crossed that our design gets accepted.  We'll keep you posted!
