Environmental Workshops October 2021
On 14th October Tudor Primary took park in various environmental workshops, and they children really were amazed with what they created in these hands on workshops. Year 2 and 3 took part in the Living Habitats workshop. In this session the children explored the reasons why our indigenous wildlife is declining and what we can do about it. The workshop included making a ‘safe haven’ for all kinds of creatures by producing a ‘Bug Hotel’ to help improve and encourage wildlife in school grounds. The whole classes took part in making a ‘Bug Hotel’ by foraging for natural materials and placing what they have found alongside bamboo canes inside wooden structures. Year 4 took part in the Green Shoot Workshop. This workshop is completed by making paper pots planted with vegetable seedlings or growing micro greens and creating an up-cycled watering can. This hands on activity illustrates how easy and fun it can be to grow seasonal food and thereby reduce food miles and packaging. Year 5 took part in the up cycling workshop. The children recycled old maps to make notebooks and learnt how we can reuse plastci and other material around the house to reduce carbon footprint. The children also learnt about sustainability and new skill on how they can up cycle more thing around the school and at home.
