Outdoor fun in January

Don’t be afraid of the cold! Wrap up warm, step outdoors and explore your environment
Talk to the children about litter and what it looks like. Act out a brief scenario where you walk along eating a packet of crisps and drop the empty packet on the ground, or blow your nose with a tissue and throw it on the ground when you have finished. Wait a few moments for the children to spontaneously respond to this and discuss the issues raised. Draw their attention to litter in their own outdoor area. Ask, ‘Where does the litter come from?’, ‘Who dropped it?’, ‘What can we do about it?’. Encourage the children to talk about litter that they have seen in other places and to express their views on its impact on their environment.
