Spring 1- Is it all just rubbish?
Week 1- WC 2.1.23
On the first week back the Reception children re-settled into school life with me (Mrs Chapman) taking over Dragonfly class. The children took part in lots of activities that allowed me time to get to know them and set out our new routines.
Spring 1-Week 2
This week we introduced our new big question, 'Is it all just rubbish?' We explored where all the rubbish we had created over Christmas actually goes once it is put in the bin. They were introduced to the 3 R's, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. We explored the impact litter and rubbish can have on our environment and that it is better to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as we can. The children took part in a sorting activity, sorting all the rubbish according to its material. They learnt how plastics can be recycled and made into something new.
In maths we looked at zero and asked the question, 'Is none a number?' Share the story and see if it helps to answer the question!
