This term we are learning about the coast. In class today we began to look at what a coastline is and why/how they change.
Throughout this topic we will also be learning about the effect of plastic on the coastlines as well as animals. To give back and reduce our own plastic footprint we are collecting any small plastic items, such as crisp packets or sweet wrappers to place inside a litre plastic bottle. This is because the company wasteaid are running an appeal for ‘ecobricks’ which are the filled plastic bottles to help build houses in Africa. We will then send this to Africa.
Also we will be reusing lots of plastic this term to create plastic sculptures to raise awareness of plastic pollution.
After all the money raised from the skipathon, we were able to invite an astrodome company in as a fantastic finish to our topic of ‘Space’.
Both classes had a great morning, learning all about the star constellations and facts about each planet.
This afternoon, Coral were lucky enough to be joined by Felicity, who is a songwriter. She talked to the children about how she writes her songs, shared a few with the children and then worked on writing a song about a refugee girl with the children.
Today we visited the Bohemia walled garden to dig up leeks, that the school have grown. We also planted some daffodils and look forward to caring for them and seeing them grow.
Whilst at the gardens we also walked around the woods on a leaf hunt. The leaves the children found they then rubbed over to see the different patterns. Also the sculptor we are studying is Andy Goldsworthy, therefore we tried to create our own versions of his work out of leaves and twigs.
We are hoping to make leek and potato soup next week with what we picked today!
