Eco Day at Sandon JMI school
On 18 July 2016 Sandon pupils got a close-up view of nature and a healthy dose of sunshine as they fashioned mud bricks in the garden, went pond dipping, built an insect hotel and and brought rain into the classroom.
The Eco Day, introduced and aided by Sandon Conservation Group, with superb organisational input from the head teacher, Margaret Gilbert, was designed to spark further interest in the environment and our place in it – in this case, it transpired that tiny water boatmen, even tinier worms and water droplets became the stars of the show.
The rota for the school day was arranged so that all the pupils joined in the four activities, and at a final assembly the children took part in a Q&A session with their teachers.
