We are always looking for ways to develop the creative sides of our children. This may be through different opportunities to express themselves in dance, drama and art.
Next half-term, your child will be given the opportunity to junk model! Teachers are planning activities for the children to take part in, which link to their areas of learning.
We need your help! Junk modelling needs a lot of junk and so we would like you to save some of your recycling so that we can use it in class. Items that we need must be clean, not glass or tin and have no sharp edges. Paper and cardboard packaging tend to be best. Unfortunately, we cannot accept toilet roll tubes.
Ideas for items you can save include –
- Cereal boxes
- Tall crisp tubes and kitchen roll tubes
- Yogurt pots
- Cardboard food packaging (cereal bar boxes etc.)
- Egg boxes
- Plastic bottles – drinks, washing up bottles.
Please could you save one carrier bag worth of suitable items to be brought into school?
Your child’s class will be completing their junk modelling project during the week beginning Monday 9th November.
We need to leave all of the materials to ‘decontaminate’ so please can you bring your carrier bag in by no later than Friday 6th November. We can then leave all of the ‘junk’ untouched over the weekend and it will be ready to be turned into our wonderful creations the following week! We will be unable to accept any more donations after this date.
Your child will then get the opportunity to bring home their creations to share with you. No doubt they will gain pride of place in your homes!
Thank you for your support in advance.
