Rr – Recycling
This week was so exciting for the Crew because we focused on the term recycling. We were pleased to hear that some of the children already had some knowledge about recycling and how they contribute in their homes. They learnt all about the three R’s…
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! It’s easy to do! Reduce – Cutting back on the amount of rubbish we make. Reuse – Finding a new way to use rubbish so we don’t have to throw it away. Recycle – Making something new out of rubbish.
We have been practicing really hard for our concert and the children are coming along nicely with their songs and moves. Well done Crew! We started the week off with building our very own little pyramids – the children coloured in so nicely and then we formed the pyramids. Great work everyone!
On Wednesday we started our art piece and it was so much fun. The Crew all contributed to a beautiful big rainbow, all made from recycled materials. We hope you love it as much as we do. Each child got to contribute and also helped to cut up all the bits and pieces we used to make it. Rainbows are a symbol of hope and we hope that by educating our younger generation all about waste, recycling and protecting our earth that there is hope for our planet and its future!
We completed a slightly trickier mathematics activity this week where we had to count the number of recycled items in the bin and plot them on a simple chart/graph. We are proud of how they performed! The Crew seem to understand the concept of more but struggle to understand the concept of less/fewer. This might be something to practice at home with basic items around the house. We also practiced our number recognition and number formation – the Crew are coming along nicely!
Next week is such a short week so we decided to start working on our Father’s Day art too! We are actually incorporating the recycling theme into our Father’s Day art and can’t wait to see how they turn out! We have also asked each Curious Crew a few questions about their awesome dads and some of their answers have been so cute! You are going to love their responses.
Please could you complete the next three letters of the letter challenge with your child. You are all doing so well, thank you for the effort!
Home Tip: We are noticing that the Crew are forgetting their manners. Please try to reinforce this at home, please and thank you go a long way. 😊
