Enriching Recycling

As part of the Bluecoat School enrichment day, year 5 teachers Mrs Hogan and Mrs Gibbons invited Mrs Recycle from Torridge District Council to work with the children in an effort to encourage more recycling at school and to reuse/recreate with items that the pupils brought in from home.

The items the children made will be used to enhance the school garden and pond area. This area is in the process of being developed as a space for quiet reflection and spiritual time but also for small groups to discover and learn about nature. The children were asked to help build create provision for bird nest building; they came up with the idea of a DIY nesting material wall hanging, a combined bird water bath stand and nest material stand. The children also built a double fronted bug hotel and low maintenance but attractive and colourful, funky flowers, from unwanted plastic bottles.
