The Earth Watchers group will be holding a fair trade tuck shop in Port Ellen Primary for the pupils. We are going to be selling GEO bars, raisins, rice crispy bars we are also hoping that the Co-op will be very kind and give us some fair trade bananas and all sorts of fair trade foods.
What is fair trade? Fair trade is when you have food that has been produced in a way that is fair to farmers. Fair trade is good to buy because you know you are supporting producers to get a sensible amount of money.
Two weeks ago when we were doing citizenship the green gang did a waste bin survey for all the classes. In each class there is a paper bin and a general waste bin. The green gang collected the waste in a bin bag but we separated the paper and the general waste in different bags. We then put one bag at a time in to a scale and measured. We then wrote the measurements down and we then put it onto Exel in a chart. There was a measurement for each class and each bin in each class.
The results show what class is the best at putting the right waste in the right bin. The red bar is the general waste and the blue bar is the paper bin. P1/2/3 class paper bin weighed: 60g. The general waste bin weighed: 150g. P4/5 paper bin weighed: 20g. The general waste bin weighed: 750g. P5/6/7 paper bin weighed: 120g. The general waste bin weighed: 140g. The class that had the lowest paper bin weight was P4/5 and the class that had the lowest general waste bin weight was P5/6/7. The things P1/2/3 had in their paper bin were wrapping paper and paper so they had good things. In P1/2/3 general waste bin they had sand, stickers, an apple and a bottle so they had good things again. In P4/5 paper bin they had newspaper, glue stick, sticks and crisp packets. P4/5 had one bad thing which was the newspaper because it should have been in the paper bin. P4/5 paper bin they had string, wool and paper. In P5/6/7 general waste bin there was crisps, paper towels, tissues and kinder wrappers. The bad things were the tissues and paper towels. Then in the P5/6/7 paper bin there was a bottle lid, pencil and mechanical pencil. The bad things there were the bottle lid, pencil and the mechanical pencil. The class with the least bad things in each bin was P1/2/3. Well done P1/2/3 keep up the good work.

Every Wednesday morning, from 8:30-9:00 we have been running a Breakfast Club for people in the school, So they can come to have Breakfast. Breakfast is very important because it gives you a good start to the day. The Mindfulness Minions have organised the Breakfast Club, they have wrote a letter to the co-op to say thank you because they donated all the food that we have at Breakfast Club. At Breakfast Club there is Croissants, Cereal, Hot chocolate, tea, juices and toast. Everyone loves going to Breakfast Club, and everyone who goes gets a great start to the day. We all have to thank the co-op for donating food to the school. We all have been enjoying Breakfast Club.
