Last term, the children enjoyed learning all about animals. To immerse the children into their learning we observed the changes of a caterpillar life cycle. This provided such awe and wonder into the class. The children learnt about how to care for these animals and what to feed them before we released them into our Spiritual Garden. 

In Art, the children carried on the animal theme by making animal puppets. They showed great perseverance when joining 2 materials together and worked hard on their designs! As you can see, they all did a fantastic job!

People who help us - Autumn 1  2023

R/1 enjoyed learning all about People who help us in Autumn 1. To help bring the topic to life, the children had visits from a local paramedic, firefighter and police officer. The visitors spoke about their job role and how they keep us all safe. The children got to see different pieces of equipment and learnt how they all worked. They even got to sit inside all of these emergency vehicles which the children loved!! The children had wonderful discussions throughout this topic, and it brought lots of excitement to the classroom.


Forest School - Autumn 2023

R/1 have been enjoying their weekly sessions to our new woodlands and wetland area to take part in their Forest school sessions. Throughout our sessions this term, the children have been exploring their 5 senses and have enjoyed observing the changes that happen to the trees in Autumn. In each session, the children have also created wonderful nature crafts which have included leaf portraits, sparklers, nature bracelets and much more! We certainly love our Forest school sessions! 🙂
