Eel Movie

Our students have been investigating the critical decline in the local eel population. This project was delivered by Victoria Bolton from the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, with funding from Galloper Windfarms. We met every Thursday after school to learn about eels, and made several visits to our local nature reserve on Sizewell Belts to find out more about the eel's habitat. The students were really engaged with the making of this stop-motion film about eels, we hope that you enjoy it.

BYOB - Bring your Own Bottle

posted 26 Feb 2019, 04:20 by Robin Oxborrow   [ updated 27 Feb 2019, 06:54 ]

It is estimated that 2.5 billion disposable cups are thrown away every year in the UK – and less than 1 in 400 are recycled!
To help maintain a healthy environment for us all to live, learn and work in, Alde Valley has stopped using disposable cups. Students bring to school a refillable drinking bottle that can be filled up at the water cooler during break and lunchtimes.
