Wrigley Litter Less Campaign – THANK YOU

Wednesday, May 1st, 2019

A big thank you to all staff, children, parents and members of our community who have supported BEYC in our participation in the Wrigley Litter Less Campaign over the last few months. We have now submitted our final report for the Campaign and it was fantastic to discover that the amount of litter we found actually decreased each time. (and also the number of trolleys in the burn went down from 8 to 1!) We saw a heron bird near the water for the first time on our walk on Wednesday.  The children were really happy about this as they will often mention that litter is dangerous for animals and birds.   We enjoyed a “Green Day” on Wednesday to celebrate being awarded another eco green flag and this also coincided with a day of litter picking in the nursery grounds as part the National Spring Clean with Keep Scotland Beautiful.  Lovely to see Eric the dog again too.


Eco day 24th April

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019

Wrigley Litter Less Campaign
As well as our last Wrigley Litter Less Campaign Litter walk at 9am on the cycle path and also the Keep Scotland Beautiful National Spring  Clean taking place in our grounds all day, Miss Heenan, Mrs Ola and Margaret are also organising an Eco day for the 24th April.  This will incorporate the previously mentioned activities as well as other Eco/green activities such as planting seeds and tidying our garden and orchard.  Weather permitting we will have a picnic outdoors and we would ask children to wear the colour green on this day if they wish. Eric the Dog mascot will be visiting too for our Eco day!

We were delighted to find out recently that BEYC have successfully renewed its green flag status for Eco Schools and we hope to receive the report and new green flag to share with you soon.

New Life at BEYC

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

Our chicks arrived at BEYC and were in our story corner for a few weeks. We had a great experience and responsibility while taking care of these animals. This was a super learning experience for the children looking at new life and life cycles. We’re looking forward to seeing this topic expand.
