Welcome to spring term

In this term we will look at recycling and ways to save the planet Earth.

Our focus text is called,

10 things to help my world. 



Please can you start or continue to recycle items at home and discuss this with your child.  Your child will become 'a super hero' to save the world.  They may remind you to turn off the TV at the socket to save energy or turn of the tap when cleaning teeth, this will save 18 glasses of water!  We have even discuss walking to school instead of travelling by car, to save petrol and reduce pollution.

We will be learning a recycling song called 'Buster and Pong recycling song' you can find it on youtube using the following link. 


Our role play area has turned into a recycling centre with our very own collection truck.  If you could take items to the local recycling centre this will give the children an idea what happens at these centres.  





Additional must reads.

Whatever Next (Jill murphy)

During this term we will learn about the different types of creatures that live in our oceans and learn many fascinating facts related to whales.  Did you know whales have ear wax plugs?
