Week Commencing 26th February 2024
This week we will continue to look and investigate the world around us and focusing on Animals that are on our planet. All of our children have really embraced the idea of just how many varieties of animals live around us and in various parts of the world. This also supports their learning regarding animal habitats and climates they prefer.
We will support our childrens learning through out the week on ‘Animals’ and the importance of keeping our planet clean and tidy by recycling and being mindful of how we can keep our sea clean for the animals.
The story chosen for this week is The under the sea cleaning spree.
The story looks at the problem of ocean plastics through the eyes of sea creatures. Blub the octopus notices lots of ‘strangers’ have appeared near her home under the sea. However, she soon realises that they’re not creatures at all, and are in fact pieces of plastic discarded by humans.
Blub and her sea animal friends decide to throw the plastic waste back to the humans, but will the humans realise the danger of leaving plastic in the ocean? This plastic pollution book for KS1 is a great tool for opening up conversations on this topic and introducing children to the concept of plastic pollution. They’ll learn that humans can recognise the issue of ocean plastics and take action.
Our song of the week is: 220.127.116.11.5. once I caught a fish alive
Our Makaton sign is: Recycling
Our sound of the week is ‘K’ The children are really grasping the song and having a go at thinking of words and things that begin with ‘K’
