Bears, frogs and butterflies…

We had a focus on Bears and Lifecycles for the last three weeks of term. The story  “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” was explored during our Royston Wood trip where we made bear faces for trees, muddy porridge, nature crowns and generally enjoyed time in the woods. A big thank you to the parents who came along to help. N.B.Our next forest school activity trip will be on 8th July – changed from 17th June.

In the hall, Donna’s craft activities have included (very cute!) bear masks, bear hunt maps,  life cycle wheels, and bear sizing sheets where children talked about “biggest”, “smallest” ….. and “mummy-sized”!

Further maths and ICT activities included playing a symmetry game with Amy, where the children compared shapes and drew lines of symmetry on an iPad.

Our “sounds of the week” were r, m and d – the children brought in lots of rabbits, robots, dumper-trucks, dinosaurs, dogs, ducks, Max …..and mums!

With the lovely weather (most of the time!) we’ve been planting, constructing and generally enjoying being outside.

Amy took construction to a new level too, with the children making cement from sand and… gel?!

We have an Open Morning on Friday 24th June from 10.30-11.30. Prospective families are welcome to stay and play with their children, so if you know of anyone who may like to join us in September, please let them know.

Have a relaxing and fun Half-Term……we look forward to seeing you back on 9th June!
