Kilbryde – Energy & Water

This year Kilbryde house has taken on a new responsibility – energy and water. We have made some changes. We are having house mornings every 1st Friday of the month instead of house meetings every Friday.

In November a lady called Emily came in to talk about reducing our carbon footprint

And she gave us some energy CDs and we got to play on them it was really fun.

Emily also gave us the carbon cutter plan which is a plan about how to reduce your carbon emissions and what we should be focussing on every month.

Kilbryde made Christingles for carols in the garden and we sang songs

And we got hot chocolate it was DELICIOUS!

A few weeks ago a lady called Anne Sherlaw came to talk to us about energy

And we watched a DVD called Energy Aunt. It was an informative DVD, and after

that we played a game of energy saving monopoly.

We went on a walk looking for good uses and bad uses of electricity we found load of each and we used up our own energy by walking.

Over the last few weeks we have been playing about with the green zone CDs and the workbooks they are environmental leaning resources for kids.

We elected our new house captains for 2010 are Erin & Aidan They had to do a speech to say what they would do for our house.

Plans for Next Year
We are also trying to organise a walk or cycle to school day with sustainable Dunblane by doing this we will be raising awareness to not cause pollution by using cars, and it is better for us to keep fit and healthy.
