Term 6, week 2

It's been such a long time since I have written a blog, I will strive to post an update every week now until the end of term!

We have had an amazingly enjoyable week. We have been outside for the majority of it, enjoying the weather and exploring the garden in so many different ways. We have been thinking about the food we eat and how it makes us healthy and strong. The children have made vege kebabs on the fire outside, they have chopped the vegetables, skewered them , then played as they roast on the fire. We had mixed results with the taste test but we'll keep trying!

Some of the children have enjoyed a session exploring the Three Billy Goats Gruff. Emma has read them the story then invited them to build their own bridge to role-play. The children have made their own cement with sand, soil and water, then built walls, cementing bricks together to make a frim structure for their plank bridge. Once satisfied they ahve used puppets to role-play the story on their own bridge, amazing!

We have built dens, made tents, explored water and sand, climbed tress, swung on the tree swing, painted the Yew tree, made potions in the mud kitchen, played football, build obstacle courses and so much more!

Inside this week small groups of children have worked hard to make their own quiches, they did brilliantly. We have also introduced our resident skeleton to explore own bones. The children have been fascinated by this.

We have made puppets of ourselves and created a beautiful card for our Dads for Sunday. Happy days!!
