Year 2 Recycling!

Year 2 have attended a recycling workshop this week. The workshop highlighted the areas in which children can help to change the world: walking to school, reducing the energy we use, growing vegetables, junk modelling, not wasting water, re-using things and recycling our rubbish.

 Tommy's homework.

At home Tommy reused boxes to create a wonderful habitat.

In class the children had 'Top' missions to create things using plastic bottles and cardboard tubes rather than recycle them or throw them away they reused them.
They made bird feeders, rain catchers and plastic bins. We also explored the danger plastic can pose to our wildlife and oceans.

'Recycle paper as trees are important they breath in carbon dioxide and give us air to breathe' said Jake and Ines.
'Reuse your old clothes and take them to charity shops' said Junior.


The Children in Need merchandise has finally been delivered (hooray) and has been given out to the children today.  Thank you so much for your patience.  To anyone who purchased Pudsey or Blush ears :  the price went up from £2 to £2.50 from when the original letter and blog was sent out.  Could you please send in the extra 50p as soon as possible - sorry.  We still have a few items left so if you would like to make a purchase please send the money in tomorrow (Thursday) and children can buy their items from Miss Redgrave in Palau class. The children may wear their badges and/or ears on Children in Need day (Friday).  Thank you for your generosity.  We will post the total amount raised as soon as we have counted the money!

Reception Friendship Workshop

Today the children in Reception were treated to an exciting morning full of dancing and acting. West End schools came to visit us for our workshop on 'Friendship'. We had an opportunity to talk and share all of the things which make us a good friend, "sharing" said Lexie, "using kind words and feet" said Layla and Stanley summed it up by saying "being someone's friend".

We then delved into our acting skills, learning how to mime. The children got to create movements to symbolise different actions for things they like to do for example running, ballet, eating vegetables and spending time with family were among things said.

Using their new found miming skills, the children were then asked to recall what makes them a good friend and demonstrated this through their own 'friendship picture' using actions.

"I liked the running" said Roman and "I liked doing the ballet" D'arcy was heard saying. The children all had a wonderful morning and we would like to extend our thanks to Glando for visiting us today.
