What a lovely few days back at school.The children have been making the most of the sunny weather. They enjoyed exploring the outside area, accessing all of the different areas of learning (especially the loud music area!) in the sunshine. Lots of imagination, communication and role play taking place. Let’s hope the good weather continues!
During the Forest Fun session the children were given the task of creating a snowflake using natural materials. They discussed what snowflakes looked like, remembering that they have 6 points and that they are translucent. They listened to what they were going to be doing and then put their wellies on ready to head outside. […]
