End of spring term

So quickly the end of term comes around and what a great opportunity to look at some of the awesome things we’ve done this term.

The children have been exploring their fine and gross motor skills with lots of activities and experiences. They loved using the streamers in the garden especially on a windy day!! Some children made a washing machine and tumble dryer from cardboard boxes, adding clothes and a washing line. How clever are they using pegs for the first time!!

We’ve taken full advantage of the spring weather… being outside as much as possible enjoying the sunshine!! The children have shown a huge interest in the new film encanto… we’ve added some activities based around this, firstly turning our wooden house into the beautiful “casa de Madrigal” and trying out our strength in the obstacle course in the garden.

We celebrated pancake day with pancakes for snack, and a fun messy activity exploring how pancakes are made.

We introduced St. Helens farm shop to the garden with real vegetables and then planted our own. Once the cress had grown enough we tasted it at snack time.

How exciting was the visit from the dentist!! We learned how to care for our teeth and gums properly and got to meet the monkey who was very cheeky.

The children turned into scientists this term with some experiments based around colour mixing and some children got to make a rain cloud.

We loved throwing the powder paint over the wet ground in the garden and watching as the colours mixed together.

We ended the term with a very exciting visit from a chicken and her chicks. The children got to have a little hold. This tides in well with our theme of growth and life cycles.

We wish you all a happy Easter… enjoy your holidays!!
