Flying High with SCRAPtastic Stories

All fairandfunky workshops encourage participants to look at the world around them and empower people of all ages with the knowledge that their actions can have a positive impact on the world around them; both locally and globally. Recycling is one simple way in which each of us can take little steps to change the world, and we were delighted to be invited to run our popular ‘SCRAPtastic Stories’ workshop at Flying High Academy to read ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’ by Sarah Roberts, and to discuss recycling with the year 2 students.

“An inspiring, challenging and fun workshop which provided the children with valuable learning experiences. It build resilience and independence in our students; reminding them to think about their rubbish and to use their imaginations when recycling!” Year 2 teacher feedback.

The workshop began with a class discussion about what little steps they already take to change the world, and how recycling can make a difference to the world we live in. The children told us all about their recycling bins at home, and what they can put in them ready for recycling – we even did some sorting of rubbish ourselves! We then read ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’ and discovered the repercussions of too much rubbish. By thinking about where our rubbish goes, and what we do with it we’re starting to make a difference to our local and global environments. When you throw something away – stop and think – can this be recycled? Can this be reused?

In fairandfunky SCRAPtastic workshops we encourage people to reduce and reuse before you recycle. We inspire people not to throw things away, but to make something! And that is what year 2 did: each student made their own jellyfish, inspired by the story, to carry the message of sustainability out of the classroom.

“The enjoyable and exciting workshop complemented our Science topic; supporting the children’s learning about recycling and the environment.” Year 2 teacher feedback.

Congratulations to all the year 2 children and staff at The Flying High Academy for taking their own little steps to change the world in a fairandfunky workshop.
