FAOL – ECO

Global Goal 16

Peace, justice and strong institutions.

 

We voted for a class president and vice president to help with some helper jobs and be effective contributors in the class. We were able to make posters saying vote for and our name. We chose pictures for them and were  confident individuals able to hold then up for all the class to see. We voted using a ballot paper with pictures of everyone on it. We then counted the votes to see who won.

 

SQA Eco – Sharing Information – Responsible Citizens

The Transition boys were Responsible Citizens this week when they researched and produced an information pamphlet about Climate change. The boys watched a new BBC programme about climate change and two different approaches to helping. They boys then selected small changes that we can make and made them into an information pamphlet.

   

World Earth Day

Responsible Citizens

We planted nasturtium seeds in the garden, for Earth Day, and built a wigwam to support the climbing plants as they grow. We must remember to keep them well watered! We did recycling and energy saving activities plus made a global cupcake flower picture. We also found that reading a story using a torch is not easy so we had better not waste electricity. At science we did a water pollution experiment. What will grow best……..the seeds with water or the seeds with lemon (acid) water? We will see next week.

Earth Day

Yesterday was Earth Day. We are Effective Contributors and already in the Bluebells class recycle and use reusable cups at snack time. We used up scrap tissue paper that we ripped up to make some earth sun catchers for our windows. We were Confident individuals and  were able to place the green and blue tissue paper inside the circle to make land and water on our earth.  We also did some painting. We used blue and green to make it look like a world and drew around our hands and used scissors to cut them out. Once dry we stuck a heart in the middle and our hands to the side as if we were holding the earth.

We also sat in the dark and read a story with torches. It was great fun. It was a sensory story and they enjoyed feeling the different items in the pages.

SQA Upcycling

With the weather being so nice the Transition class managed to get straight back into their upcycling projects. The class are Responsible Citizens cutting down on waste items by re-purposing them.  We are nearing the end of our Bottle Greenhouse build and making and collecting each item for the recycled pallet road project.  The boys put in excellent effort.

    

Focused Area of Learning – Eco – Gender Equality

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS *

The Planets class enjoyed looking closely at a range of superheroes. We watched clips of Spiderman and Catwoman. We had lots of discussions about their superhero costume, their logo and their super powers.

We looked at a range of superhero images and sorted them into boy and girl categories. We decided that they all made great superheroes and turned ourselves into superheroes!

Some of us said they would want to fly, some would be invisible and some wanted super shrinking powers!
