If we’re booked or schools have sensitive budgets, we have come up the perfect solution, a Workshop in a Box!
We can send materials to make 35 Up-cycled notebooks made from beautiful old maps, recycled paper and card. Pupils will love crafting their own 100% up-cycled notebook to take home.
Our ‘Bug Hotels’ are a great addition to a schools wildlife area, they arrive complete with bamboo, plus instructions on how to make and position them. Building a ‘Bug Hotel’ will help children of all ages learn about the natural world around them and the structure will contribute to your school’s ecosystem.
Feedback from teachers who received the Workshops in a Box
The workshops went well, all the children loved making their recycled notebooks and were very enthused to think what can be up-cycled in the future, some pupils went on to to write in their notebooks about what they can do to make a difference”. Natasha Pinner – Aylward Primary School – London
“Philip Hunton, from Green up Your Act, provided `Bug Hotels` to Kesgrave High School. These arrived in good order and was quickly followed up with a phone call from Philip explaining the details behind the construction and then how to erect the box correctly. This was much appreciated.
We are very fortunate at KHS that we have a medium sized wood beside the school, which we have access to although it is protected under the `Site of Scientific Interest` scheme. With the help of two Year 7 students we ventured off to the woods to site and position the boxes. Shafts of glorious sunlight filtered down on the trees and what was a pleasant morning in Kesgrave.
The students successfully sited and erected the two boxes in an area of the wood that, whilst not on the beaten paths, is accessible for monitoring of the boxes.
Both the boxes were well made and filled with various materials to make habitation for bugs very attractive. If schools are participating in scientific studies of bugs, or highlighting green issues, then these boxes will certainly provide secure habitat for a wealth of bugs and creepy crawlies.
Finally, Phil has been most helpful and patient in assisting us with the boxes and we extend our appreciation to him and to Green up Your Act.” Rob Pearson – Kesgrave High School – Suffolk
