On Thursday 23rd September all pupils at Rowan Tree took part in National Fitness Day. They showed off various skills by taking part in different activities throughout the day including scoring goals in football and basketball nets, catching balls on the air juggler, jumping on the trampoline and throwing hoops over the cactus. As well as developing their gross motor skills pupils also developed skills in other areas of the curriculum for example; counting throughout each activity, recognising the different coloured balls, waiting for their turn and sharing with friends.
Fir 2 have been visiting ‘My Life’; a centre where they can work with animals, tend to plants, and really get to know what it’s like to work on a farm. This week the children had the chance to weed and water the plants, plant their own bulbs and feed some of the hungry animals.
The children grew in confidence and independence doing important jobs for the centre. They got to see where eggs came from first-hand at the chicken coop. They also learnt that a daffodil starts its life as a little bulb in the soil. So much learning and so much fun. Well done Fir 2.
