During Environment Week we decided to use Wall-E to help us learn about the sort of environment we would like to live in. We thought that Earth in the future was messy and dirty and not very nice. We also learnt how important plants were.
We decided to plant some beans to add some more plants to our environment. There were some other seeds as well and we talked about which one would grow fastest if we put them in a race.
Look what happened to the bean only a week later!
We also talked about 3-D shape a lot during the week as Miss Parker set us a challenge to build our own Wall-E but only once we could talk about the shapes we needed to make him.
Doesn’t he look wonderful? He even has a flap on the front so he can open it and put the rubbish inside. You might be able to spot some kids from Garnet class there was well who came to help us.
We also worked with our friends from Nursery outside to create a giant Wall-E. He was bigger than we were!
Our parents and carers made lots of comments on our learning about Wall-E during Environment Week.
What have we been learning?
- About what our environment is and what we would like it to look like.
- About the importance of plants and why we need them in our environment.
- About 3-D shapes and how to describe them using the correct words- edge, vertices and faces.
How you can continue the learning at home!
- Collect some boxes and junk modelling- can you make a model of Wall-E or a different robot?
- Look for 3-D shapes in your home and think about why it is a good shape for that job, for example, why don’t we have a sphere for a TV?
- Tlak ajot what you like in your home environment and what you don’t like. Make sure you keep it tidy like Wall-E did!
- Look at the plants in your garden. Which plants do you have? Could you add any more!
