As part of this week’s recycling topic we had a super visit on Tuesday from Mrs Williams, Arthur’s mummy, who talked to us about the importance of the three Rs of 'reduce', 'reuse' and 'recycle'. She showed us some environmental pictures and videos, encouraging the children to participate in the discussion which they did well. She runs a community shop 'Filling Good – Zero Waste Shop' in the Craft Coop in Nicholsons Walk, Maidenhead, where we can refill our own containers which is a wonderful way of helping to save our planet. Thank you Mrs Williams.
The Nursery children have enjoyed the topic about recycling and have used items such as bottle lids, newspaper and other scrap pieces to make pictures and have spent time sorting items by type of material.
Transition children have been learning about the adverse effect of plastic on the oceans and set up a representative tray to sort underwater sea creatures from environmentally unfriendly items. The children celebrated Holi and experimented with powder paints.
The frog spawn collected by the Honeycomb class has now developed into tadpoles which the children are amazed by.
During the week commencing Monday 16 March the Nursery children will be learning about 'Easter', the colour yellow and the number 9. Any small toys incorporating these would be ideal as their 'show and tell' item this week. Transition children will be learning about 'Climate change' and the letters v,w.
