At their Joint Sessions, the Pre-5 unit and P1/2 have been learning about the 3rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. They enjoyed making fabulous pictures using their unusual art materials – straws, pompoms, beads, lolly sticks….but no glue! This means that the material is not wasted but reused each time. Children took pictures of their art instead.
This was our first eco meeting with the new committee.

At the Pre-5 and P1/2 joint session the children were learning about recycling. They sorted materials and decided which could be recycled. They looked for the triangular recycling marks on the plastics and discovered lots of different numbers – because there are lots of different types of plastics. These can all go in our pink recycling bags at home!
The new eco committee held their first eco assembly. Eco monitors from each class reported to the school what had been happening in their classes – even our Pre-5 eco monitor who closes the door, switches off the light and helps take the fruit peelings to the worms! The committee shared their ideas for the coming year with the school.
