On Thursday afternoon Eagles made the most of the beautiful weather by having their art lesson in the front garden. Mrs Holt was particularly happy with the added bonus of not getting clay on the carpet!

The children enjoyed smashing the ceramics and setting them into the clay tiles they made.

Owls have planned and begun a science investigation to see what conditions best suit plants. Over the next few weeks we will monitor our plants to see how they do in different conditions such as with no water, no sunlight, no air or cramped together.

It has been frog mania at Forest School this week! Everywhere we stepped, frogs were jumping around our feet! I'm not sure who had more fun, the children or Nel trying to catch them!

As well as trying to study the joys of British wildlife, we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. The children have been very enthusiastic about this nursing legend (particurlaly Leo, who is likening her to his Mummy, who is learning to be a modern day Florence Nightingale!) We have been writing letters about the awful conditions she encountered in Scutari and we have been creating paper lanterns to signify the 'Lady of the Lamp'.

 

 

Robins Round-up
Here's a quick summary of some of the exciting things Robins got up to at the end of last term...
  • We performed our class assembly about Jack and the Beanstalk to the rest of the school and mums and dads.
  • We met Harold on the Life education bus. We learnt a lot about our bodies and how to keep them fit and healthy.
  • Robins had a fantastic trip to Cotswold Farm Park. Despite the cold weather we enjoyed finding out about lambs, chicks, rabbits and guinea pigs, had a bumpy tractor and trailer ride, fed the animals before jumping on the bouncy pillows.
  • Finley introduced us to his new bay sister Gwen and we all had a cuddle.
  • At Forest School we toasted marshmallows on the fire and hunted for the Easter bunny who was hiding in one of the trees!
  • We decorated Easter cards with messy shaving foam marbling and met Karyn’s baby rabbits.
Phew! What a busy term.

Today, Kingfishers were treated to a visit from our very own Dr. Steele! Hattie's mum very kindly paid us a visit to talk to us about her job as a Doctor. She spoke to us about bones and how we can study pictures of our bones with x-rays. The children guessed which part of our anatomy we could see on the x-ray images. We then looked at specimen bottles and blood vials. The children asked some super questions and were fascinated with the things Dr. Steele brought us in to show.
