Recycling Week, Harvest and Autumn

This term we have been thinking about ways we can look after our world. We have all explored 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' and had our own 'Beach Clean' in the water tray! We have been very impressed with the ideas and views the children came up with in our discussions during play - such as "You can get clothes in a charity [shop] and toys", "You can use a backpack at the shops", "My Daddy fills a water bottle up again and again". They also decided to clean the bikes to "Make them like new again". My son also got involved and donated a box of 'Book Buddys' for the children to share in the book corner. Coincidentally, Jane went on a Beach Clean over the weekend and we enjoyed looking at her photos and hearing about her experience. We have also enjoyed listening to a sweet story called 'Somebody Swallowed Stanley' about a plastic bag that gets mistaken for a jellyfish! This term we are also exploring Harvest and Autumn too, thinking about being thankful for the things we can grow. We have enjoyed tasting some tomatoes from our garden at snack time and have had great fun observing the changes happening in the garden, come rain and shine! A fun term so far!

Lantern is part of the Children and Families work of Redland Parish Church. The Church also offers a Toddler group, Toddlers in the Park, and a monthly Family Service.  Sunday school groups, for preschool and primary-aged children, run alongside our 10am service on the other three Sundays in the month.
