Live Love Care Think Learn Dare

Reception Times 9 March 2018

Friday 9th March

What a super week we’ve had thinking about recycling and how we can reduce the amount of waste we create! For the last fortnight we have been thinking about the types of rubbish that can be recycled and how we can do our bit to protect our planet. We have learnt about the amount of rubbish that gets put into landfill every year and how plastic can affect wildlife and sea life.

The children have seen a wonderful show from ‘The Junkband Orchestra’ and were so inspired by his work that they wanted to create their own musical instruments! We have also been thinking about ways of reducing food waste by making Banana Cakes using over ripe bananas and Bubble and Squeak Bites using vegetables that might be left over from your roast dinners.

Miss Persaud has been on some training by the Diocese to support schools with a C of E status as part of her role as RE co-ordinator.
Outside we have been thinking about ways of protecting our wildlife by making bird feeders and using recycled materials to make musical instruments.

In Phonics we continue to work towards your child’s targets. Thank you for your support with reading and writing at home.
