In Ash 1 they have been exploring different ways of moving across the floor and on the equipment! They walked, slid and crawled along the benches and explored moving like a variety of animals on the floor! They had such a good time and took turns!
In Acorns the children are very excited about their new real caterpillars that they have in class.
Berries have loved meeting their class caterpillars. We have looked at them everyday and been amazed how much they have grown. We have also been using comparative language such as big and small.
Today in school we took part in the National Day of Reflection to reflect on our collective loss, support those who have been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.
Each class had a one minute silence. This was a period of ‘quiet time’ in class that children coped really as well with.)
In addition to this, after school, staff held another minute of silence in our Memorial Garden. The garden is in memory of pupils and staff who have passed away Staff took some time to reflect and say prayers in their own ways as Deanne and Ann planted two new honeysuckles to remind us of those who died across the world during the pandemic.
Today in the Art Room we enjoyed making self portraits using all natural materials that we collected ourselves from around the farm! The children were given cardboard containers by Miss Glennon before she led us on a hunt to find natural resources.
We created our portraits on a huge piece of black paper that we have brought with us back to school in order to show our friends!
We met a farmer who told us an interesting story about a chicken named Big George and his grandfather Massive George! Then we met Big George’s newborn baby son… The children were given the opportunity to name him and went with Tiny George which he will now be forever known as!
Some of the children who were brave enough enjoyed having a photo with the chick they had just named!
