At nursery we recognise how important it is to take care of our environment. Our nursery charter states that 'each one of us has a responsibility for the world and its inhabitants, both of which deserve respect and nurture' .
Talking part in this years ‘Great British Spring Clean' was the ideal opportunity to play our part in keeping out community clean as part of the wider world...starting with our nursery grounds and the forest where we do our Forest Schools learning.
To start our learning we talked about how all around the country children and adults were ‘Keeping Britain Tidy’ by safely collecting litter in their own community to make it look even nicer.
In nursery we did lots of learning and talking about why it was really important to make sure that we didn’t drop litter, but instead put it in the bin. We talked about the different types of rubbish and how some of it could be re-cycled at nursery and at home and we even looked at all of the different bins that we have a nursery and what they are used for…
The rubbish bin, the (Rocky) re-cycling bin, the compost bin, the nose blowing bin and the hand towel bin in the toilet!...what a lot of bins. The children were fantastic at discussing what all the bins were for and showing us where they were in nursery, which is part of our new nursery 5 Finger Rights Respecting Rules, to make sure our rubbish is going in the right place.
As part of our special Thursday activities the children did a litter pick around the nursery grounds and in the forest with Debbie. They kept very safe by using special grabbers and made our nursery grounds look really clean and tidy. Well done everyone!
