Happy Easter

We have had a lovely Spring term and have done lots of things. We are sad to say goodbye to Mrs Fuller but we are looking forward to hearing about her baby.

Happy Easter to everyone! Thank you to all the helpers who have come into class this term or to Forest School, we really appreciate it!

Back at Forest School!

This half term the Turtles will be having a few sessions in the forest on Tuesday afternoons.

Yesterday we looked at how the area has changed from the end to summer when we last visited, to now when it is Winter!

We improved a den that had been built by another class, Mrs Griffiths fixed the swing and some children sketched the area as well as making dragon tails and bug hotels with natural materials. This links to our new topic, Slaying the Dragon!

Thank you to Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Farrand and Mrs Waite for helping!

Pasta Time!

We had a lovely time in Forest School today! Mrs Fuller  cooked us pasta with tomato sauce and cheese on top; it was delicious!

We also had fun on the swings and making things with clay.

Thank you to Mrs Garlinge, Mrs Rose and Mrs Ridge for helping!

No forest school next week, but we will have a fire on the 10th July!
