    Friday 25th June (Fiona Dyer)

    The ECO squad had a great camp over at Rowley HIll Farm last weekend!

    Here are some qoutes from the children: "I really enjoyed the camping trip, rummaging in the meadow, exploring in the forest and roasting marshmallows." "I loved seeing all the nature and walking in the forest." "I loved whacking a path through the woods."

    An area of the woods had not been touched for over a year, so the children had to use a stick to clear a path through the undergrowth. 

    We explored the wild flower meadow and found some rare wildflowers. We found Broomrape flowers and Bee Orchids. 

    We went on a spooky walk through the woods then had toasted marshmallows.

    The next day we were challenged to make a wild flower rainbow. 

    On a walk around the Farm we noticed the soil layer and had a great discussion about how precious it is. The picture says it all. 

    We were so proud of all the children! a

    Eco Squad Christmas Stall Decorations (Islay Dring)

    Eco Squad makes ornaments for the Christmas Fair

     

    As usual Eco Squad made ornaments for the sale at the annual school christmas fair. This year our objective was to use all recycled materials and no glue in making our ornaments. 

    Every member thought of a Christmas decoration. The ideas included; 

    1. Dried apple star hangars
    2. Curtain-ring Santas
    3. Sock snowmen
    4. Jesus in a nutshell
    5. Felted wool balls
    6. Heart keyrings
    7. Bottle Snowmen
    8. God's Eye's
    9. Waste fabric pom poms
    10. Pencil sharpening Christmas Trees

    At the fair everything was sold and we raised £17! 

    We just about achieved our objective because we used a little bit of glue. 

    Happy Christmas everybody!
