Remote Eco Coding Show is go!

Updated: Oct 19

So, we’ve only gone and done it!

.... delivered our first Eco Coding show to the lovely Year 4s at All Saints Junior School in Fleet ..... almost 7 months since we were supposed to deliver our first show on 24th March!!

It was a delight from beginning to end - we delivered the show through our new pre-recorded video to the children in the classroom, and then ran the activities outside in the playground, ensuring we maintained social distancing. It just proves what you can do when you put your mind to it! It was also so good to be able to give the pupils something fun and different to do when so many of their usual visits are not possible, or can’t be run safely.

The children loved the ‘TV programme’ and could not believe their eyes when Professor Trice was waiting for them in their playground!! Such a relief to discover the filmed version really worked for the children … and the teachers too! Thank you so much to all the Staff at All Saints Juniors, and our amazing Team at Get with the Program of Margaret Almey, Jeanne Fox, Serena Selby, Sarah Kempson, Cheryl Hitchcock-Smith, Nicole Porter, Jánoux Gerber at WilderLight Productions and Hampshire County Council Waste Prevention Team who funded the development of the show!

Also huge thanks for the fantastic support from our volunteers including Inge Malig, Pia Perkins, Nick Dennes, Carol Fogarty, Tracy Sacks, and many others! And of course to Hart Voluntary Action and Hart District Council for our funding to allow us to deliver the activity resources in a COVID-19 safe way! Please let us know if you’d like to join our happy volunteer teams of no more than 6 - next week we’ll be in the Wyvern!

Can’t wait to deliver our fully remote version to Tweseldown Infants next week…
