What a week of changeable weather we have had. We have made the most of the sun when it shone and got up out into the woods. We found lots of beautiful Bluebells hiding in the woods, we know not to touch the wild flowers and leave them alone to let they grow. We had fun seeing how green the woods looked and enjoyed our snack of pears or apples outside too!
In our art corner we have done some wonderful observational drawing looking at a pineapple and a watermelon and thinking about their colours and textures. We cut up the watermelon to look at its inside and discovered its seeds! Outside we have been planting seeds and talking about what a seed might need to grow, and have placed some pots in a dark cupboard, a sunny windowsill, some outside and one even had no soil just lots of water in with the seed – I wonder which ones might grow?! The children have been telling us all about the seeds they have planted at home – please send us pictures of any growing projects you’ve got at home – we would love to see them! While watering our seeds some children discovered that you can make water shoot out of a syringe very fast! What fun we had seeing how far we could make the water travel and how it was different if we pushed fast or more slowly.
We have been practicing writing our names lots this week too – how amazing is our writing?!?! – the children are very proud when they show us they have written their name on a piece of work ( and it makes our life easier to make sure they can take their work home!)
Until we see each next week, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.
Take care, stay safe and have a lovely weekend!
