Here in Mes Bach we are eco friendly. We like to care for our world and environment.
We know how important it is to recycle. We want to help our planet to be clean and a safe environment for us to grow and live in. We enjoy sorting our rubbish into groups of paper, plastic, metal and glass. We also enjoy playing our recycling bin game where we have to place the right rubbish and waste in the correct recycling bin.
Did you know that a cardboard box is more than just rubbish?It can be used as a pirate ship, a bus, a rocket and many more exciting objects that our imaginations can create. We like to use old cardboard boxes to make houses and dens; as well as using them to develop our fine motor skills by colouring, painting, drawing and cutting them.
We know how important it is to support Fairtrade. We always look forward learning about Fairtrade during Fairtrade week. We buy fairtrade chocoloate and bananas to make delicious chocolate covered treats and use fairtrade coffee from the school staffroom to make coffee paintings. We have a fairtrade jungle on a tuff tray where we can pretend that we are fairtrade workers planting, growing and harvesting coffee beans, bananas and cocoa beans.
We use the rhyme ‘Look at the label, see where it’s made, always remember to buy fairtrade’. It helps us to remember how important it is to buy fairtrade.
We love to explore in the open and great outdoors. We always love to plant flowers and watch them grow
One morning we came into Mes Bach and found lots of rubbish on our floor. It was very difficult to move around and be able to do all our lovely activities in class. It made us feel very sad. We read a story about how a turtle lived in an ocean that was full of rubbish. The rubbish made the turtles very sad and very poorly. We must remember how important it is to care for our planet. Always remember to REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. Please help us to save the turtles!
We like to sing these recycling songs that help us remember to care for our planet.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (Incy Wincy Spider tune)
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,
These are words we know.
We have to save our planet,
So we can live and grow.
We might be only children,
We’ll have to try you see.
We will save our planet,
It starts with you and me.
