Today has been No-Paper Day and classes have been busy doing lots of active learning. In P2 we have been creating and acting out stories in drama. We have also helped the school to make the giant world in the playground – see a separate post about that. Finally we cleared the world away and put all the clothes in the Rag Bag for recycling.

Our final activity of Eco Week was to make a giant world out in the playground using the clothes we had collected for the Rag Bag recycling bin. Everyone had a chance to help to fill the outline of our world up with items of clothing, shoes, curtains blankets and other textiles. At the end P2 packed all the clothes away and put them in the Rag Bag bin. Good news! The bin is full again and we have 4 more bags to go in. This means more money for the school.Thank you to everyone who sent in items for recycling over the week. It was all used – more than once, and our Eco Week was a great success.

The sun shone for us again and everyone from P1-P7 had great fun on Thursday afternoon playing the games that the Eco Committee had planned for our very special Eco Sports afternoon. We shot at football targets with homemade newspaper footballs, played skittles with plastic bottles and more homemade balls, ran an obstacle race to sort the rubbish, and flapped fish in the school hall. Occasionally the wind played havoc with our equipment, but everyone agreed later that the afternoon was a great success.

The nursery children have been using recycled materials for their art and craft work this week. At snack time the children have been recycling their fruit skins by putting them in the compost bin. Eco Week on PhotoPeach
Today saw the start of our Eco Week. We began with Green Day – everyone wore something green. We wanted everyone to start the week thinking about what it means to be ‘Green’.
Look at all the happy faces – we love being Eco Friendly at Aberlady Primary!

At lunch time the whole school went outside for an Eco picnic. We invited parents, relatives and friends to join us and the sun shone to make it a great success! What is an Eco picnic? It is a picnic where we use recyclable and reusable packaging, and where we think about the air miles that our food has travelled to get to us.
