We’ve had a lovely and busy Eco week at Abbeyhill! On Monday, each class created woodland animals out of recycled materials. Miss Smith and the Eco group created the background, we hope you agree it’s looking fantastic!
On Tuesday, we hosted a tuck shop to raise awareness for Fairtrade.
Wednesday saw every class go out to litter pick in the playground. Everywhere is looking very tidy now.
No paper day Thursday saw lots of different activities around the school, helped by the fantastic weather. P3b and P7 rose to the challenge of an Eco themed fashion show.
Today we saw lots of woodland animals come into school, raising money for WWF and the Eco group. Lastly, we really enjoyed the Eco friendly golden time choices we had, such as chalk art and time on the trim trail.
We’ve had a lovely week and are looking forward to health week!
I’m in the Eco Committee and have made some posters to put up in the school. I have three posters, one that says ‘keep the park clean’, one that says ‘always recycle paper’ and also one that says ‘do not cut down trees’ (unless you plant more).
This term we are heading towards getting our Green Flag (as an environmentally aware school)! We have done lots of very exciting things, like running a Fairtrade tuck shop to raise money for Fairtrade. In the New Year we will be doing Big Schools Birdwatch- more information on that to come!
We would like to ask you how you have been getting on with your Eco working. Have you been recycling, putting litter in bins and switching off lights when they’re not needed?
Primary 4 took the train to North Berwick this morning. Although we were hoping for a lovely, sunny day to complete our trail around the town and use our recently acquired mapping skills. Sadly, the weather decided not to play along. We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Lobster Hatchery where Maggie explained the various stages of the lobster life-cycle. After lunch the weather improved so we continued with our trail to Lodge Gardens where we enjoyed a play time in the park. Just enough time to have a wee cone before returning to school on the train. We were all shattered after our busy day.
