The first signs of spring could be felt this week with birds singing and buds emerging on the trees. Despite a few dull days we were treated with some glorious sunshine and made the most of it with lots of outdoor learning. On our country walks the children found wild daffodils across the field and many of them asked to take some home for their Mums. In the garden our younger children enjoyed having a go on our outdoor obstacle course complete with balance beams, hoop hop scotch and a running jump finale, displaying some of the best face plants onto the crash mat that we have ever seen.
Since our last blog we have had our school photographer Brett Lenman come in to take the group photographs for the pre school children. We were so pleased with the final result as Brett worked his magic, achieving the impossible of having 16 children looking at the camera at the same time. Order forms have been handed out by your children’s group leaders.
To celebrate the arrival of the new season, the children have made Spring branches festooned with blossom and birds that you can see hanging from the rafters of the art room. With Miss Natalie the pre schoolers have been practising their pencil skills by writing some Spring words.
Next week is the last week of term and with Friday being a bank holiday the last day will be Thursday 29th March. There are still a number of spaces left on our Easter holiday club so be sure to book this week if you want your child to join the fun.
Next week’s sound is ‘M’ for Mount Carmel.
