Little Elms learn about plastic

Inspiring boys to explore and become knowledgeable about the world around them is a big part of what we do in Little Elms. Topic subjects are wonderful for inspiring the boys to explore different areas of their world. Finding topics that focus on their interests are not just inspiring, but also promote engagement right from the beginning. So when we decided to explore ‘Under the Sea’, I knew the boys would be engaged and inspired straight away. This allows us to go further in depth with the subject.

We had a really wonderful discovery afternoon on Tuesday. First, we had a group discussion and looked at a Powerpoint presentation about plastics polluting our oceans. I feel it is never too early to get children thinking about the choices they make or will make in the future. We then enjoyed two activities centred around recycling and one activity where the boys had to ‘clean the ocean’ to save the fish. The boys all got stuck in and tried each activity, whilst Miss Payne and I sat listening to the many conversations and asked questions to support and extend their knowledge.

Future conservationists, UNITE!
