In Reception, we have been learning about planet Earth.  The children were shocked to learn about how poorly we have treated our planet and how, deforestation, pollution and landfill are destroying our planet.

Today, the children came in from lunch to find that their classroom had been filled with somebody else’s rubbish!  We talked about how this made us feel and decided to tidy up.

The children sorted the rubbish into piles of different materials – this led us onto some interesting discussions about the properties of materials and recycling.

Children continued to identify and sort materials and read about recycling.

We also explored magnets and the role they play in the recycling process.
