This week the children have taken advantage of the warmer weather as they have embraced the opportunity to take their learning outdoors, immersing themselves in the wonders of nature. They have enjoyed watering plants, going on bug hunts, and learning about shadows. Engaging with the natural environment plays a vital role in supporting the overall development of our young learners. Nature provides a rich and diverse learning environment that stimulates their curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving skills. By immersing themselves in nature, children develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the world around them. They learn to observe, explore, and make connections with the natural elements, fostering a sense of wonder and awe.

As our ‘Once Upon a Story’ topic draws to an end, in class the children have immersed themselves into their class texts. Pre-Nursery have been exploring the enchanting tale of 'Dear Zoo.' The children have been captivated by the story and have actively engaged with its characters and themes. In Nursery, a standout moment was when the children acted out the classic story of 'The Enormous Turnip.' It was wonderful to witness their enthusiasm and teamwork as they brought the tale to life. Their creativity truly shone through!

Reception have been thoroughly engaged with the story 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea.' They not only enjoyed reading the book but also took the opportunity to write invitations for next week's tea party which is planned after the Spring Bonnet Parade.

We very much look forward to welcoming you into school next Thursday to share the Spring Bonnets that you have created at home with your child.
