The children enjoyed learning about being safe around a camp fire. They roasted marshmallows and had some hot chocolate.
The children planted grass seeds and patiently waited for it to start growing. They learnt about what plants need to grow.
Children helped break a bar of chocolate in half and found out what we needed to melt chocolate. "hot, heat to melt it." "It goes hard when you put it in the fridge." "The cold makes it hard again."
Thank you to parents who could come to our Easter Craft Morning. The children loved making and we hope you enjoyed the 'Billy Goats Gruff' songs performed by the children.
At forest school we found tadpoles in the pond and collected some to look after. We will see how they transform into a frog (up to 7 weeks from tadpole to a little frog). We also found a frog hiding under a boat and a spider that could walk on water.

We visited the play park as a treat for winning the 'Punctuality Panda'. The children learnt to play with others and take turns. As well as keeping ourselves safe when playing on park equipment.
Our visit to the post box to send our postcards from the south pole to our homes. Many of the children knew the road name and number of where they live.

"Double 4 is 8"
"There are 4 pigs in a barn and 4 pigs outside. There are 8 pigs altogether."
