We were so fortunate to have Alison visiting Thames Kindergarten last week, as she had a story to tell about all of the rubbish we make and where it goes when we throw it away.
Some goes in the rubbish bin, some in the recycling bin and then rest can be composted or fed to the worms in a worm farm,
Leo, the lion explained that some of our waste can be made into new things, that is called recycling. It means that something is being used for a different purpose, like an old and broken umbrella which was used to make Leo’s arms and legs.
Then the cover for the umbrella was used to make Alison’s skirt. All the children loved how it swirled and twirled during the dancing that was done to the music. Alison wrote all the words to the song and out it to music.
All the children enjoyed the duck puppet, especially when Alison showed us all the rubbish that Duck had eaten from the water where he swam.
What a great drum, made from an empty paint can. She also showed us how it can make your voice sound louder.
Our children danced as they learnt about making compost that can be used in our garden to grow strong vegetables to eat.
What a wonderful way to learn such important things about keeping our planet clean.
