Thursday Today we looked for signs of spring. We took magnifying glasses and spotting sheets with us. The children saw some shoots and flowers beginning to grow. On the way back we enjoyed playing in the snow !! In the afternoon the children planted some beans, they used a see through container and cotton wool, […]
This week we have been thinking about love and friendship. We read ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ and thought about who we love and how we can show that we love them. We’ve been making heart shapes for cards and with salt dough. It’s been a wet week so we’ve been enjoying jumping in […]

We read the story ‘The Bear’s Winter House’ and thought about different animal homes and which animals hibernate. We made our own houses for teddy bears. We’ve also been looking for worms, washing our wellies and filling the fire bucket ready for our fire.

They started the week by making clay hedgehogs, and building homes for the hedgehogs to hibernate in during the winter. Later in the week […]
