St Benild School – Green Week – Saving the environment

During the ICT lessons the boys used the Bee-Bot to map the journey between various good practices of saving our planet, such as not using a hose pipe to wash the car, using a cup of water while brushing our teeth, filling the sink rather than use running water to wash the dishes and separating waste.

St Benild School – Green Week – 3 Rs

Our school invited Green MT personnel to deliver a talk to all the boys about the 3Rs – reuse, reduce, recycle. They were reminded which material can be recycled in the grey bags and what should be left out eg. Foil, packets.  They were also involved I the discussion as they were asked various questions throughout the talk. It all ended with a song related to the 3s and the boys were given a leaflet to take it home to encourage their families to recycle too.

St Benild School – Green Week – Re-using

After the talk we had about the 3Rs, during the art lesson, a table was set up with plenty of stuff we usually throw away or recycle straight away eg. Cereal boxes, empty kitchen and toilet rolls, newspapers etc. The boys could draw, paint, cut and transform these scrap pieces into their own works of art. They were then stuck all together to create a whole group collage. See photos attached.
