Nursery walking through the jungle.

Walking through the jungle, What do you see? Can you hear a noise? What do you see? A fox looking for his tea. A Gruffalo looking for his tea. I wonder if they enjoyed the children’s mud soup.

Making nests

In nursery we listened to the birds singing. In spring the birds make nests for their eggs. We made nests for our birds.  

Learning how seeds grow

Today we talked about how seeds grow and what they needed to grow. We planted French beans, radish and lettuce into a vegetable bed and the same seeds into cups with water.  

Easter activities in the woods

On the way to forest school we checked our pond for signs of spring. We have Frog spawn. We had an Easter egg hunt before enjoying hot chocolate and hot crossed buns by the fire.

The Great Fire of London

The children in KS1 are learning about the Great Fire of London. As part of their homework the children made houses. The children built Pudding Lane in the woods to recreate the Great fire.
