The children in Reception Class have discovered it takes a long time to grow flowers. On a cold day in November we planted our bulbs.
In March we started to notice the stems peeping above the surface of the soil.
When we arrived back from our Easter break, the flowers were in bloom. What a lovely surprise!
As part of our “Good News” topic, the children in Reception Class have been learning about the Post Office and how the postal service works. On Tuesday this week, we went off to the post box with our letters. Each child posted a letter home. It was a beautiful sunny day, so we took the long way back to school and enjoyed looking for trees with Spring blossom. What a lovely day for a walk!
At last the children are able to leave their coats, and even their jumpers, inside and enjoy the sunshine in our outdoor area. The children have been caring for our new flowers and planting our beans; they have been looking for tiny creatures who have wandered into our garden as well as having a wonderful time playing and making the most of the sunny weather. What a lovely start to the Summer term!
The Nursery children have been busy planting seeds this week. We will watch them grow into little seedlings and then plant them in our garden. In the coming weeks we will be planting more flowers, herbs and vegetables. We will watch them grow and measure them using different methods.
We found a basket full of socks that were in a complete muddle. The children helped to sort them into pairs. They did a great job – they can all help you at home. They really got the hang of using the pegs.
The children have been making safe vehicles for Humpty Dumpty to travel in. They used boxes and had to think about how to create a safe space for him, ways to stop him from moving around when we tested them with actual eggs.
Year 1 very much enjoyed making and sharing ideas with each other as they worked. They were able to help each other by holding objects in place or with cutting out holes so they could actually fit Humpty Dumpty into the boxes.
