This week in Reception the children have been learning about the problem with plastic in our oceans around the world.
They have watched videos from Blue Planet and seen some of the problems that plastic can cause for the sea creatures that live in the oceans.
The children decided to create different inventions of machines that could help clean up the pollution in the seas. They had some wonderful ideas ranging from giant nets with suckers on, to under the sea machines with claws to grab plastic bottles. They also talked about how the plastic could then be recycled and turned into new things. In drawing club the children then wrote about how their machines worked.
The children used the construction and junk modelling to make their models too!
