Here comes Boj

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

A POP­U­LAR chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion pro­gramme has been in­spir­ing Bucks pupils to re­cy­cle to celebrate Na­tional Re­cy­cle Week.

CBee­bies star Boj toured 12 schools in Bucks dur­ing the week, which ran from June 22 to 28, and inspired the chil­dren to get ‘Boj-ing.’

Boj loves to re­use and re­cy­cle and he showed chil­dren how to think ‘out­side of the box’, be re­source­ful and most im­por­tantly – have ex­pres­sive messy fun.

One of the schools Boj vis­ited was Great Mis­senden CofE Pre-School in Church Street,

The pupils col­lected re­cy­cled boxes, rub­ber bands and bot­tles and got “Boj-ing” by trans­form­ing them into shakers, mi­cro­phones and shoe­box gui­tars, all adorned with colour­ful Boj stick­ers, be­fore singing along to mu­sic from the show.

There were also ac­tiv­ity sheets with a re­cy­cling theme t a colour­ing in sheet and an episode of the show to watch where Boj fixes his friend Den­zel’s guitar us­ing ev­ery­day ob­jects, much like the chil­dren did on the day.

Preschool co- or­di­na­tor at the school Ch­eryl Tay­lor said: “Boj is a great role model for chil­dren to learn about be­ing re­source­ful, cre­ative and just about be­ing a re­ally good friend!”
