St John’s buzzing about ECO morning

On a cloudy but dry Friday morning, St John’s pupils brought colour to our ECO morning as they dressed in every colour of the rainbow to celebrate our annual ECO gathering.

Nursery dressed as bumblee bees to start off our celebrations and this year’s theme was of course ‘Save the Bees!’. Each class paraded their handiwork with some amazing efforts from the pupils and ECO reps shared fascinating facts and bee jokes with the audience.  The St John’s school choir treated us to a fantastic musical interlude whilst we ate our ice creams.

It was a great morning celebrating our ECO work and spreading the message ‘Save the Bees!’, well done everyone!

P3 help shape the future

Both P3 classes worked with Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust today to share ideas about the new park space which will be created on the present St John’s school site.

Abby and Ruth showed the children pictures of paths, benches, play apparatus and ECO friendly reycled resources. Children were asked to draw their ideas on large A3 maps and label these.

The children had lots of great ideas including Flying foxes, football pitches, treehouses and fun parks.
