Caring For Our World – Recycling









Rr- Recycling

“Stamp, Stamp Clap! (X4) 

We love animals, plants and birds! We love snails and slugs! 

Large and small, we love them all! And we never ever step on bugs! 

Because… we’re the children of Ecokids 

We love nature, the sun and the trees! The rain that helps plants grow! 

Paper, Plastic, Glass and tin our recycling rules we know! 

Because… we’re the children of Ecokids” 

What you have just read is our school song. It is such a fun song to sing and really shows everything that we as a school stand for.  

What an informative and exciting week we have had! We learned all about recycling and the different materials we use to recycle. We got to feel glass bottles, plastic, paper and tin and see different variations of products made from these materials. Bags, bottles, lids and plugs made from plastic. Toilet paper, toilet rolls and the books we read made from paper. Bottles, windows, bowls made of glass and formula tins, food tins, coldrink cans and the container where all this cool stuff is kept made from tin/metal.  

Art this week was slightly challenging as most of our art we send home is recycled art. So we thought, what could be better for recycled art then… recyclable material sculptures!!! We used all bits and bobs that have been sent in by students and parents over the years to create these amazing sculptures. The Bugs got to select from a large quantity of recyclable materials that we had poked holes in, and thread them onto a stick stuck on an egg carton base. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see these beautiful creations just yet… You’re going to have to wait for Art Expo! 

Our favorite songs for the week was “Reduce, reuse, recycle” 

“Reduce, reuse, recycle, recycle, recycle. 

Reduce, reuse, recycle, it’s easy to do. 

‘Cos your trash and my trash make up way too much trash. 

Reduce, reuse, recycle, it’s easy to do!” 

Please keep in mind the beautiful words of Dr. Seuss. 

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to change, it’s not.” 

We hope you have a lovely weekend and stay warm!

Father’s Day and Sport

We spent lots of time this week asking our Bugs questions about their Dads; What their names are, if they know how old their Dads are, what work Dad does, whether he plays any sports… And we while didn’t always get answers to all of these questions, one thing we can say for certain, is that very clear that our Bugs just LOVE their Dads!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Farm: Farm Animals

We learned all about the different noises these animals make, and the different names that the boy and girl animals have, such as hen and rooster or sheep and ram. We learned the names of the baby animals, like chick, lamb and piglet! It was such fun pretending to be these animals at ring time! Our children have very vivid imaginations and have a lot of existing knowledge about farm animals.
