Year 1 have been thinking carefully about how to protect the ocean today. We looked at a variety of pictures of rubbish on the beach and in oceans and it didn’t look very nice! We discussed what we could do to solve this problem. Children had great ideas from picking up rubbish to putting it in the bin or taking it home to put in a bin at home if there are no bins nearby.
We each created a sea creature and added it to a mobile. Half of us made a clean ocean mobile and decided on the message: ‘keep the ocean clean’. The other half created an ocean mobile full of plastic rubbish where their sea creatures were getting stuck or trying to eat the rubbish. They decided on the message: ‘put rubbish in the bin’. Everyone recognised it is all of our jobs to keep the beach and ocean clean.
Fantastic work and discussions, well done Year 1!
