An Eco week was held recently at the Auchterellon Under 5’s group.
The group have praised the youngsters for the help in achieving a Silver Eco-schools award.
The youngsters spent time learning more about all the Eco issues from looking after the birds in their garden by making bird food to learning about which materials can be recycled and reused. Even elephants were created by using milk cartons for an arts and crafts activity. Meanwhile, the 2’s group and playgroup took part in a “walk to 2’s group/Playgroup day” where the children were encouraged to walk, cycle or park the car a little further away and walk the rest of the way. Gill Poole of the group said: “It was a successful week all round introducing the children to recycling, reusing materials and Eco issues.”
