Spring 1 - Who is Isatou Ceesay? Based on One Plastic Bag by Miranda Paul
Spring Term - This is me!
Who is Isatou Ceesay?
During the autumn term we learned about our environment and the importance of recycling and protecting our oceans, as well as saving energy to protect the polar regions of the world. During this half term we learn about the current environmentalist, Isatou Ceesay and the recycling women of The Gambia.
Isatou embodies our school aims of being Caring, Creative and Confident. She cared about her environment, she was creative with how she recycled the plastic bags in her village and was confident she would succeed, when those around her laughed at what she was trying to achieve. Through this real life story the children learn about goals and dreams. Through our literacy we re-tell this story and then innovate the story by changing the settings and the characters. In this way we learn about the different environments in Africa.
