COMMOTION IN THE OCEAN
How Should We Treat Animals?
How Should We Treat Animals? is the question that we will answer through this project over the next couple of terms.
We will start the Summer term by learning about all different kinds of sea creatures, how they look and where they live. We will move onto talking about imaginary sea creatures which the children will design in school and write a description of them as part of their writing activities.
We will also talk about safety near water, the uses of water linked to healthy lifestyles and talk about floating and sinking through experiments with water.
As we move into Summer term 2 we will be learning about how to look after the oceans and environment so as to keep animals and our planet safe.
The Reception children were so engaged with their Memorable Experience.
We were extremely lucky to be able to have Travis, from the Eco centre, to come and visit us at school to teach us to build bug houses and composters, hunt for insects and investigate them, and even have a campfire to toast marshmallows. The children learnt about different types of insects and the importance of protecting them. They explored the environment to compare natural and man-made materials to find out which ones the insects would like best for the bug houses. The children showed great team work to be able to move the sticks and logs and learnt about safety around fire. We finished the morning with a picnic on our field. The reception children are ECO WARRIORS!
