SALE WOMBLES ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROGRAMME

Sale Wombles offers  a unique educational actvitiy for  school children from Nursery to Y1/2 level.   

For several years, the Sale Wombles has been offering a "Mr. Womble" school activity for children of Early Years/Year 1 Programme.  The content of this activity falls within the EYFS guidelines for children aged 30-50 months – “Understanding of the World”, and “Personal, Social, Emotional”

In 2017 we have re-mastered this programme and we are delighted to welcome Sue as our classroom guest speaker, in the role of “Mrs. Womble”. Sue has enjoyed a long career as a teacher of primary children, and we have staged this actvity at several primary schools in Sale area. 

SWEEP includes two parts, which fits into the established class time schedule. Firstly Sue meets with the children in the classroom to talk about caring for their community and all creatures within it, with an emphasis on the impact of littering.  

After this session the children will be invited to carry out a practical litter picking exercise in their enclosed outside play area. The children will be provided with little yellow hi-vis vests and litter pickers. The purpose of this section is to demonstrate the impact litter has on our public spaces. The entire exercise lasts about one hour, and after this activity, the children will be provided with a souvenir badge, and either Womble colouring sheet or environmental word search puzzle
