Following on from our sustainability day on Friday, here are just a few snaps of our team in action. During the day we created scarves and scrunchies from pre-loved pieces of clothing as well as running a variety of awareness workshops focusing on sustainable fashion and clothing production.
It was a brilliant day and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Another huge well done to the members of Project 31 for all their efforts in organising and running the event, and to our fabulous house captains for their help and support during the day! We are very proud of you all 🙂
I would like to say a massive thank you to our Primary Five Project 31 members 👏🏼. We have worked very hard this term to learn how to up-cycle old clothes into scrunchies and scarves at our lunchtime club. In addition, they planned our event today where we had various stations including:
-plotting which country your clothes were made in on a word map to understand the carbon footprint✈📌🗺
–creating top trump cards based on your clothes👗👚👖
–creating games from re-cycling materials🎲
-a Kahoot quiz on sustainable clothing💻📊✔
-scarves and scrunching making✂🧣🧤
–trading items at our swap shop♻👕⚽🧩
Thank you to everyone who came along to enjoy this event and to our fantastic House Captains for assisting Primary Five with their activities. 🌟 I hope you are looking forward to our next Project 31 Sustainability Day! 😃
We took lots of photographs this afternoon and we hope to post over the next few days. 📸
Remember our motto…
TRADE-> MAKE -> CREATE -> BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! 🌍♻
Lat session our Junior Road Safety Officers worked hard to complete a traffic survey around the school and compile their findings into a Safe Travel leaflet. This leaflet has been distributed to the whole school but we thought you might like a wee reminder. Well done to our JRSOs once again. Please click on the link to view.
Mrs Ferguson and the Transport Eco Group worked very hard last session to update our Travel Plan. We are very proud of the group and thank them very much for their hard work. Click on the link below to view the plan.
As part of our Eco School Action Plan the Global Citizenship group are raising money to support the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Members of the group will be visiting classes to give pupils and teachers the chance to “Guess the Teddy’s Birthday”. This will run from Tues 3rd – Fri 6th December. Whoever guesses the correct date will win the teddy. The cost will be 50p a go and you can have more than one shot if you want!
If you would like to take part please bring the money into school (not ParentPay).
Our Litter & Waste Eco Group have had a very busy time recently. They have worked very hard and we are very proud of their Anti Litter Policy (click to view) achievements. We launched our Anti-litter Policy at last weeks Assembly and it will be displayed in every classroom and at points around the school.
As you know we are also recycling batteries through the Big Battery Hunt. We have had an amazing reaction already with two buckets already full. Once again, well done the Litter & Waste Group.
The busy Litter & Waste group also took part in a Litter Pick around the school. We collected 5 bags of rubbish from outside the playground! Well done to Nathan, Blair, Jack, Ryan, Heather, Freya, Mhairi and Amira for all their hard work and a big thank you to Mr Hutchison and Mrs Grant for their help.
Active Kids vouchers can no longer be collected from Sainbury’s but if you have any in your purse, wallet, handbag or that messy kitchen drawer everyone has, please send them into school so we can order cooking and sports equipment.
This week you were set Eco homework which most of you took the time to complete. Well done to each of you! This morning you presented your homework to the class and I have to say it was very well done. We had some very interesting information shared and some great discussions taking place. Here are some photographs of the work you produced. Can you spot your work?
Day 5 and the sun definitely was shining for us today. Bike numbers dropped slightly today however scooter numbers and our parents numbers increased. Hopefully next week we will increase those numbers even more. Mirren and Chloe S were our photographers again today.
Yesterday we visited the Eco Fair. Stations were set up to make you think about the different areas linked to being eco friendly and helping the environment. Please tell someone at home some of the activities you were involved in.
Yesterday afternoon as part of our Eco Week activities some of you had the chance to plant some mushrooms. The compost was quite smelly but that didn’t stop you! The container has been put somewhere dark and we will check on it in 6 days (Wednesday).
One of you can take our mushrooms home to look after over the Easter holidays, as we really shouldn’t leave them in class as they probably wouldn’t survive if we did, and we don’t want that! If you would like to take them home and look after them, please bring a note in from someone at home giving you permission and we will choose someone. Please only volunteer if you are not going away over the holidays.
If you didn’t get a chance to plant yesterday, we might be able to convince Mr. Collins to let us do some planting in the school grounds when the weather gets a bit warmer.
This afternoon, the P7s who completed the Eco Homework Tasks got together to showcase their work. I was very impressed with the effort and creativity shown by you. We had powerpoints, posters, booklets and lots more. Well done!
Yesterday was Big Pedal Day 4 and our numbers increased again with a rise in the number of scooters. Hopefully this will continue into next week. It was lovely and bright yesterday but not as bright as your smiling faces.
As part of Eco week we welcomed Taylor Wimpy 🏡 into our classroom. They taught us all about how they are making their building sites more Eco friendly. We took part in activities and experiments and had lots of fun.
