Unfortunately, some of them disappears mysteriously...
When only some left, we use them to create pictures :-)
Today our student Fabio teaches you how to create a beautiful swan using recycled paper. Try to do it!
Check this creazy pigs out!
You can do it too!
All you nieed is three baloons, old newspapers,
natural glue (water+flour), egg cartons, and tree yogurt boxes as a noses:)
One day we have decided to use boxes and packaging in a creative way.
All together, we have decided to make cars. Everyone has jauntily started to work.
Boxes were wrapped with old newspapers, medicine packaging was used to make turn-signals, old paper plates made the wheels.
Ah, how much fan we had and for such a long time!
we would like to show you some photos from an art exhibition we went to last week.
It showed art made of recycled books and paper.
We hope you like it.

Our collegues want to be very eco, so they decided not to fly to England. That`s why we created a
taxi cab powered with the force of fantasy and dreams :)
If you want to know more - please ask Maja and Agnieszka :)
One day, Weronika came to school and said that she had a brilliant idea - we can creat a "recycle man" from the toilet paper`s rolls. We started to collect the rolls, it took us a long time but finally we have managed! We had over 70. Then we started our work. And that is the result!
This article has some beautiful ideas about how to recycle plastic bottles.
Sarah and the Red (primary) group at Collingham have already tried out the vertical garden idea.
Hello my name is Thorey I’m in Brúarskoli and I like being here. I was knitting these socks out of left over yarn, because I want to use the things we have left. I like these socks because it’s really colour full. My teacher is really good helping us to use everything we have left. Bye hope you show us things you are making
I made a jumping mouse from a old T-shirt a found some info. hope you like it.
Where do they live?
Woodland jumping mice are found throughout northeastern North America, from central Manitoba to northern Quebec and south into the lower Appalachian Mountains (northern Georgia). In Michigan, these mice may be found in the Upper Peninsula and in the northern three tiers of counties in the Lower Peninsula.
How long do they live?
Members of the jumping mice family have relatively long lifespans. For example, Brown (1970) estimated that western jumping mice live at least 4 years in the wild. Even though woodland jumping mice have a high turnover rate in the fall, with a maximum life span of 4 years, they live longer in the wild than most other North American small mammals. The average lifespan is 3 years. The long lifespan of these animals is at least partly due to their ability to hibernate. However, because age is estimated the amount of wear on molars, and because N. insignis only uses its teeth for half of the year, determining age can be difficult.
What do they eat?
Woodland jumping mice eat a variety of foods, including fruits, seeds, fungi, and insects. In many areas, these mice depend on the fungus Endogone for food. This fungus was found in 78% of the mice examined, and made up about 40% of what they had eaten. This large percentage of consumed Endogone is not found in any other small mammal. These mice were also found to have eaten raspberries, May apples, blueberries, ferns, leaves, and nuts. Insects are another important part of the diet of these mice, providing about 22% of their food. Woodland jumping mice do not cache food.

Enjoy the film ;)
Last week in school, we made recycled footballs!
Our tip is - try to make them as spherical as possible!
In March, together with the British and Italian Partners, we took part in the eco-workshop: “Second life of rubbish”.
We had a great discussion about the eco lifestyle. We tried to find an answer to how we can do shopping without producing a great amount of waste. The teacher told us how to segregate rubbish according to the latest regulations. We discussed the legal garbage dump and the “wild garbage dump” - what influence they have on our planet and our lives. At the end, we did some art work – with recycled materials, of course! - using the decoupage technique.
In January, we had another Comenius workshop in the
St.Ludwik`s Hospital. This time the title was “Tonnes of rubbish... what next?”.
During the meeting ,the pupils found out about:
places where rubbish goes after it leaves our houses
what happens during segregation
what happens with rubbish that goes to only one collective container
refuse heaps and garbage incinerators
As a didactic help, we used Alex Frith`s book : “Recycling and waste” We also used a computer
game- “Waste recycling”
The kids also learned the meaning of the ecological signs that can be found on the packages of products.
The last task was to find the signs on different packages (e.g. on plastic bottles, paper boxes and glass) and to explain their meaning.
There was a competition in our school - to find some ideas or examples of re-useing the thing.
The competition won Weronika (14 years old).
Below there are the brilliant ideas she found
