All the fun of the Eco Fair! 6.11.15

November 6th, 2015




This week at St Stephen’s has been Eco Week. We have enjoyed lots of visits from our friends in the community who have been teaching us more about our three Eco themes: Litter, Transport and Sustainability.

Sally from the SSPCA joined us on Tuesday to teach us about wild animals and their habitats, pets and how to protect injured animals. She showed us where some Scottish wild animals live and gave us advice about caring for hedgehogs and deer foals.

On Wednesday, Mr Fowler came along to help us complete a ‘mileathon’ run around the playground. We also had Mike and Gemma (visitors from the Glasgow Science Centre) who taught each of the classes about being active and keeping our bodies healthy. Joseph and Zabiallah particularly enjoyed being volunteers because they got to wear some very fetching head gear to demonstrate our brain’s reaction to success.
The teachers were not to be left out- Miss Black was ‘electrocuted’ to demonstrate what happens when our muscles cramp. The result of this was very shaky handwriting and a lot of laughs from the children.

Primary 1/2 enjoyed a trip to the Riverside Museum to learn more about Transport.
More classes look forward to their trips to the Riverside Museum next week.

On Thursday, we were visited by a former St Stephen’s pupil, Darren from Springburn Harriers, who led Athletics sessions with every class. He taught us some new skills we can use in the playground and the Gym to keep us healthy and active- thanks Darren!

Today was everyone’s favourite part of Eco Week- Wear Green / Eco Fair Day. The boys and girls all look very Eco friendly in their green outfits and we managed to raise funds for the Eco Committee who will use the money to improve our playground for the children. A great day was had by all- thank you for supporting us. We hope you enjoy the photographs!
