The Story of Skycity

The children in all three schools have worked together to write a story for our project. Children from Greece began the story, children from Poland wrote the middle of the story, and the children from England ended the story.

Forests are improtant for being healthy, for breathing oxygen. Last years, Greece suffered from forest fires, something that nobody wants to remember.In our drawings, you can see how nice forest is when it's green and how bad it looks when it's burnt...

SOS for forests

Every of us know how important is to save forests. Trees offer us oxygen.They use water so they help stop floods. What is more, forest are shelters to many animals. It is obvious that we all should protect them.
Kids were talking about all forest`s importance and it`s future (which doesn`t look bright if humans still turn forest into fields or use trees for paper). They drew nice pictures showing jungle, cutted down areas and these which were destroyed by fire setting...

Our visit in the place of segregation and recycling

On Tuesday, 5th of May, our Team had an opportunity to visit a place of rubbish segregation and recycling in Zabrze. We saw some typical places in there where plastic and paper is collected and segregated, soil is made from the grass and leaves, and electronical staff or batteries are collected.
We realized how hard is the work of people working in such a place. What is more, we saw what we can really receive from rubbish instead of throwing it into municipal waste dump.
Have a look...
