S1 John Muir Group 2019/20

The S1 John Muir Group 2019/20 have started working on their Explorer Award this term. They will spend 10 full days in the outdoors, exploring the natural environment around Bellshill.

The award involves 4 sections:
– Discover a natural environment
– Explore the area in depth
– Conserve the environment
– Share their learning

Last week the group met for the first time and learned who John Muir was and why he was a key figure in conservation. They have started work on their John Muir display board and will build on it each week.

This week they DISCOVERED the Greenlink paths connecting Bellshill to Strathclyde Park. The pupils used their artistic skills to create leaf drawings, paint river pebbles, and they took photos of the day.
