Dormice enjoyed visiting the school allotment yesterday. We talked about and matched pictures of the vegetables that are growing in the planters. We had a hunt to find the insect hotel and used our senses to smell and feel the herbs in the herb garden.

Dormice Enterprise Project
The children in Dormice have been using their enterprise project money to make grass heads to sell at these Farmers market. We hope to raise some funds to plan and initiate lots more fun activities in our class.
Maritime Museum Visit
This morning we welcomed Mrs Selby into our class. She helped us to create an Advent Wreath that the whole school will enjoy during the advent weeks ahead in December.
We will shortly be learning about the meaning of Christmas and what Advent represents.
Do you like the children's gardens?
We enjoyed taking an Autumn Walk during to Beresford park.
The children explored the world around them and used lots of descriptive language to explain what they could see, hear, smell and feel.
Leaves were hidden down low, underneath, high up, on top and next to lots of natural materials.
We also enjoyed some delicious hot chocolate to warm us up before returning to school after our exciting learning adventure.
Making Apple Crumble
We enjoyed using the apples we collected from our allotment visit to make apple crumbles!
We talked about the importance of good hygiene and how to stay safe when baking using a hot oven and sharp tools to cut the apples.
We used our counting and measuring skills to weigh the ingredients and followed a step by step recipe to create the crumbles.
We also made some extra apple and blackberry crumbles to sell to the rest of the school and raise some extra pennies for our foundation stage fund.
It was lots of fun!
Fun In The Woods
We had a wonderful time visiting the woods for our whole class trip. We kicked off our forest sessions with some exciting activities. We talked about staying safe and staying within the boundaries.
We learnt about taking responsibility for our natural environment to keep it protected and safe.
We met the forest protector who gave us each a ticket to the forest.
We matched colours of the forest to colour charts and made a forest floor picture.
We worked as a team to create a shelter and enjoyed singing some songs around the campfire.
It was such a great day!
We had great fun on our Spring walk! The children looked at the pictures of the Autumn walk and then compared them to what is happening in nature now. The children took photographs of buds, blossom, old crunchy leaves and new leaves, Daisy’s, daffodils and tulips.
Once back in the classroom the children wrote about the walk,created Spring collages and painted flowers.
