Spring 2 week 1

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, […]

Spring Term Week Seven

This week we have been thinking about growing and looking for signs of Spring amongst the wind and the rain! We have planted seeds for French beans and talked about what plants need to grow.

Pre-School Spring Term Week Six

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 […]

Pre-School Spring Term Week Five

We had good fun re-telling the story and learning about the different animals. We made mini sledges, large cardboard sledges and even a wooden sledge using […]

Autumn Term Week Ten

This week the children have continued to think about hibernation and we also started to think about our other woodland friends who may need warm beds as we move into winter. They started the week by making clay hedgehogs, and building homes for the hedgehogs to hibernate in during the winter. Later in the week […]
