Eco Club are looking forward to working on an intergenerational programme to plant apple trees in our own garden and that of older people in our community. The younger and older people will work together on this project.
We were delighted to have Miriam and Susan in with us to lead an apple workshop in preparation for this.
We tasted different varieties of apples and then planted our own apple seeds. Hopefully our apple trees will grow!
Eco Club meets every Monday afternoon from 2.40 - 3.30pm. We spend time in our school garden and also work hard indoors on fun Eco-saving and crafty ideas! It is taken by Mrs Jones.
Our Eco club created their own Eco Code and some members shared their code with us in assembly. Eco Club work hard to keep our school environment safe and clean. Super job!
Our beautiful garden during our summer holidays!
Our Eco Club shared their Eco Code in school assembly!
Look at the rhubarb we grew! We made Rhubarb pie and rhubarb and custard - yum!
Our garden is looking amazing - especially in the sunshine!
Enjoying the lovely sunshine - planting seeds, tidying up and doing some project work in our gorgeous garden! Even a bit of DIY from Daniil!
The whole school enjoyed a visit from the RSPB, organised by the Eco Club, to support our Great British Bird Watch day. We all found out a lot about garden birds, their habitats and what they like to eat. Many thanks to Catherine O'Boyle for coming along on the day.
The Eco Club had a really interesting afternoon when Catherine Boyle from the RSPB came to talk to us about biodiversity.
She helped us workout how to survey our school for signs of biodiversity - that is, signs of plant and animal habitats in our school grounds.
We are looking forward to her returning to school to help us with our Big Birdwatch after Christmas.
On Tuesday 8th June, some of the members of Eco Club went to Central Station to collect our participation award for the Translink Walk to School Challenge - congratulations to all those pupils who took part in the challenge! We all did really well!
Congratulations! The Eco Club have achieved their Bronze Award - the first step to gaining our Eco Green Flag! Congratulations to all the Eco Club members who have worked so hard!!
Please remember to send all your completed Translink Walk To School Challenge forms back to school as soon as possible!!! We will be looking at all the results this week in Eco Club - thank you!
Thank you to everyone who provided unwanted clothes for Cash For Clobber - we raised £46 for our school! A great effort!
The Translink Travel Challenge begins on Monday 11th April and will run every school day for 2 weeks. Every child should have received a chart to tick off each day to see who use what form of transport they use to come to school. Let's see how many of us can walk to school every day!
Cash For Clobber!
We need all your unwanted 'Clobber' - clothes, shoes, handbags, etc that you have finished with. Please put them in a bag and bring them up to school. We will pass these on to those in other countries who are desperately in need of new clothes. Bags are available from the school office, or just bring them up and we will bag them for you. The school will receive 40p per every kilo collected.
Clobber will be collected on Monday 22nd February - so why not have a good clear out over half term?!
Christmas at Eco Club
We had lots of fun at our last Eco Club session for this term making tree decorations out of some of our bottle tops!
We have now stopped collecting bottle tops – many thanks to everyone who helped collect such an amazing amount!
The Eco Schools Club is a group of children from P4 - P7. We meet every Thursday afternoon in Mrs Jones classroom from 2.40pm - 3.30pm.
We need your bottle tops!
The Eco club are going to create some fantastic art projects with your bottle tops. Please send them into school - all sizes and colours are welcome!
There will be a box in the foyer to drop them into, or you can give them to your class teacher - thank you!
Thank you to everyone who has been collecting bottle tops for us! The Eco-Club has been busy starting our first piece of art for our school grounds. Can you guess what it's going to be?!
Please keep collecting!
