A VILLAGE school’s eco credentials have earned them a trip on the London Eye.

Pupils at Roecliffe C of E Primary have been busy working towards their Silver Award as an eco-school by looking at ways to save water, alternative sources of energy, and recycling, and have been helping the rest of the community to recycle by delivering textile recycling bags to homes around the village.

They have been marking their progress on an educational website called The Pod and have notched up so many points on the site that they have been rewarded with tickets for the London Eye, and a contribution towards their travel costs.

“The children are all very exciting about the trip, and so am I,” said class teacher Kerry Dalton.

Children in Years 5 and 6, along with their teachers, will be travelling to London later this term, and will fit a visit to the Natural History Museum into their day in the capital.
