It was wet and windy at times today but that didn’t stop our children enjoying the great outdoors!
The children in Year One used their ‘Forest Friends’ sessions to develop their knot tying skills in order to create shelters, which proved quite handy at times. Team work was in order as they had to communicate their ideas and cooperate with each other so that their shelters were the best that they could be. By the end of each session the woods were adorned with an array of shelters and everyone felt very satisfied with their work!
Meanwhile, away from school, the second half of Year Three ventured out to Belfairs Woods where they created large scale art, took part in nature trails and even had time to enjoy the park.
Back in school, Mrs Cox was helped by children in Year Four in the goat enclosure. The stables were given a good clean out and the goats climbing frame was swept and brushed down- all jobs which pleased Geraldine, Gordon and Gerald no end!
In the morning, the downstairs hall was full of parents of Foundation Stage children who came along to hear all about our ‘Letters & Sounds’ sessions. Miss Toms explained how the sessions support reading and writing before Mrs Bowden demonstrated a session with the help of her class from last year. Thanks to everyone who came along.
In the afternoon, after the children in KS1 and Foundation stage had enjoyed pineapple as part of their first ‘Taster Tuesday’, the children in Owls developed their skipping skills before Mr B hosted an information session for this years reading helpers.
