Dear Children, I have been sent an email from ‘Eco-Schools’ telling us about some things we can be doing at home to help our environment. This is not just for the Eco Hub but for everyone to have a go. Please take photos of any projects you manage to do and send them to the school. The email and links are below, good luck! Mr Innes
Dear Eco-Schools Coordinator
We are working on adapting our Eco-Schools and wider programmes so that pupils can continue working on environmental topics from home, and wanted to let you know about two activities that are online on our Eco-Schools At Home page.
The Pop-up Pocket Garden is a gardening project that can be done at home in a small space outdoors, or indoors on a windowsill. It provides a great opportunity for children and young people aged 3 – 18 years to design and grow a small garden. There are themes to inspire you and a design brief to guide practical building and growing. We are looking for exciting and unusual designs that use edible plants, plants that attract wildlife and will reuse something which would otherwise have been thrown away. The best Pop-up Pocket Gardens will be featured on the Keep Scotland Beautiful website to celebrate your ideas and skills and inspire others.
For children aged 8-25 years old, Young Reporters Scotland is a perfect opportunity to investigate and report on an environmental or sustainability issue which matters to them. The competition is designed to give young people a platform to express their opinions and solutions for environmental issues in addition to providing an opportunity to develop their own journalistic skills.
It would be great if you could share details of these programmes with your students. More resources will be added to the page as soon as possible.
If you have any queries, please email us in the first instance at email@example.com and we will answer your query as soon as possible
