We are very lucky to have our own pond at Sacred Heart which is full of great learning opportunities. However Eco Club have decided that it needs to be revamped a little bit. This week we have cleaned one of the older benches ready to paint for next week. We are then planning on stencilling the bench with mini beast pictures. The bench will then be put in the pond area so that children can sit whilst they learn in there. We hope you like the colour.
Ware in Bloom
Eco - club and Welly Wednesday children have really enjoyed learning about how to grow their own vegetables. So far the lettuce, potatoes, onions and runner beans are growing very well. I gave been really impressed with the children's dedication and their hard work watering their plants every day. At the end of the summer the Ware in bloom group will and look at how successful we have been.
We always teach the children at Sacred Heart that to learn and be healthy it is important we eat a balanced diet. KS1 were lucky this week to take part in a healthy eating workshop. The children learnt about a wide range of fruits and were encouraged to try ones they had never seen before. We were also able to make our own smoothies using Bicycles to power the blender. Some of us liked it more than others but we all were brave and tried it.
Eco - club are also trying to reduce the amount of food we waste at lunch time. This week we have been weighing the left overs for each class and hope to reduce it by the end of the week.
Congratulations to members of the eco -club who were awarded the Silver certificate in the Edible Vegetables competition run by Ware in Bloom.
