Brushbots from Tate Liverpool

Today Tony from Tate Liverpool came to visit and brought his Brushbot making kit.

To make a Brushbot you need:

1 motor,
2 AA Batteries
1 Whobbler (a wooden disc)
A pen 
and some elastic bands.

Attach the motor to the batteries place them on the hard side of a brush, attach the whobbler to the motor and away you go!

On Wednesday 27th February 2013, Everton Nursery School and Family Centre was assessed as part of our application to attain Eco Schools Ambassador Status. During the same visit, we were also inspected for our 4th Eco Schools Green Flag.

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded our 4th Green Flag and we await the decision regarding Ambassador Status in May.

The award is due to the hard work of Lesley Donohue and the rest of our Eco Committee.

For more information about the Environmental Curriculum for the EYFS at Everton Nursery School and Family Centre practitioners can purchase an eco file from our website, or E-mail the Centre evertonecc@talk21.com.
