PLANET PLASTIC

In 2014 we made a film called Planet Plastic. It was about people throwing rubbish away. We wanted to make the film to encourage people to take their litter with them and not to leave it on the beach. I am very proud of it. All the sounds were made by us using rubbish from the beach. Planet Plastic was part of our attempt to get our 4th  Green Flag. We were helped by Ben and Camille. Watch our amazing film below!

IT WAS ONLY ME IN SCHOOL TODAY!

 

It was only me in school today! Everyone left on the boat at lunch. Except for me! Because it was a sunny day we were going to walk all the way to the Orchard to prune out trees! It was very sunny and was seeming to work out fine. But when we got there, Neil who was going to be helping us said we wouldn’t be able to prune them because if there is a clear sky in winter, it means it’s going to be frosty. And if it’s frosty and you prune a tree then it will do exactly the opposite of what you want it to. It will stop it growing! And guess what, there was a clear sky. Instead we put a stake in next to one of the trees that was falling over as it’s old stake had rotted. Rosy and Hamish the dogs helped too!DSC00714

But instead of taking 1 hour it only took 5 minutes! So we went to the pier and got a fizzy drink instead! Then we went back to school and I began to blog this. It is about 10 past 3 now and i have started blogging about this!

Food in the school

At Eigg Primary School we have packed lunch and before we eat we  say grace. The child’s mum or dad makes the packed lunch. The week before the end of the Winter term we have a Christmas lunch, where we cook tons of different food and veg and then pudding. We have lunch in the community library while the teachers have theirs in the nursery. We grow our own vegetables in the school’s garden.
