Signs of Spring!
Despite the cold, the children managed to get stuck in at Forest School this week. We talked about signs of Spring and seasonal changes that we had already noticed or will be expecting to see - as the weather warms up!
Some of the children used a range of skills with different tools to create wooden snails - from sawing to hammering and drilling. Others chose to decorate tins and plant tomato seeds to take home and grow. It was also the perfect weather (windy!!) to make flags and use natural paintbrushes to decorate them.
In between all of that, we managed to bring the children back to the fireplace to get warm with some hot soup and fresh bread!
Year 1 day at Cotswold Wildlife Park
Year 1 enjoyed their day out at the Cotswold Wildlife Park seeing lots of animals. Their keeper led talk about different environments, ocean, dessert and rainforest, will help them in their learning about animal habitats in science this term.
Thank you to Amelia's Mum for joining and supporting us.
Foundation Stage day at Cotswold Wildlife Park
What a busy day we had at the Cotswold Wildlife Park on Thursday. All the children did very well walking around to see as many animals as we could, finishing off with a relaxing ride on the train. I am sure they all slept very well afterwards. Thank you to Lucy's Dad and Summer and Elliot's Mum for joining us.
Children all had their favourite animal and we shall be using the experience in our writing next week.
A slippery visitor
A big thank you to Ruth and her Dad for bringing one of their snakes in on Tuesday. Children in Foundation Stage and Year 1 enjoyed learning about how to take care and look after the snake then everyone had a chance to touch her. We found that snakes are not actually slippery at all, they are cold blooded reptiles that are carnivores with scaley skin.
World book day
Some brilliant and thoughtful costumes for world book day, we have all enjoyed the special activities this week.
