This week in Little Birds, we have been inquiring into the roles of Refuse Collectors, Park Keepers, Marine Biologists and Cleaners.
We spoke about how to keep our environment clean both at Nursery and home.
We found out about different ways to recycle and dispose of rubbish appropriately as well as exploring the importance of refuse collection.
We had great fun sorting waste into recyclable and non recyclable categories.
We have shown the Learner Profile Attributes ‘Caring’ and ‘Principled’.
We made a collage from a variety of textured materials.
We also investigated what it was like to use newspaper as a modelling material.
We observed the changes that would take place when using paper mache to envelope an ovoid balloon and an empty milk bottle.
Little Birds made predictions as to what might happen to our models once they were dry. This activity developed the our communication skills.
Following our interest in sea life, we decided to look at the role of marine biologists and explored how they care for the ocean and the safety of the animals.
We were very knowledgeable; we used non fiction books to find out information about the different occupations.
We also listened to stories about recycling.
