The children have been helping to nurture our plants in the garden, they have been learning about what flowers and plants need to grow. We found out they grow best with sunshine and water. We will continue to look after them and observe the flowers growing.

The children were developing and showing off their football skills during a session on the pitch. They started off with a warm up game of fruit bowl which involved them matching the coloured markers into the correct fruit bowl and moving their bodies in different ways – running forwards, backwards and sideways. Good listening skills were being encouraged as they followed instructions in the traffic light game – they had to stop and start, balance their foot on the ball, jump over the speed-bumps and roll the ball around their bodies when they came to a roundabout. The best part was running with the ball close to their feet for good control, take aim and score a goal. They lasted until the final whistle blew. Next week we will play football at the zoo.

Pipe dreams!

Thank you to Alex and Lenny from Wolseley for delivering a van load of pipes, pallets and two baths to our nursery garden.
We can’t wait to explore and investigate our new resources. Watch out for further photographs to see what the children do with these fantastic gifts.

What is a Walking Bus?

When we spoke to the children about taking part in the Walk to School Week Walking Bus, quite rightly, they wondered what it was!

Today we made an extremely long Walking Bus, with the children, their families and staff working together. In fact it was so long that when Parker looked back he commented, “Wow! Look at that” and when we  crossed with John he said, “Now it’s a half bus”, because we had to cross in two groups.

Thank you to everyone who took part today. This was a very valuable experience. It played a big part in reinforcing and increasing our knowledge of Road Safety as well as all the other important reasons such as increased health and well-being, reduced traffic congestion and pollution. This is what our children said,

“It’s a workout, you get more energy” – Jack   

“You can’t run, cos you might fall” Jaimee

“I learned if you hold your mum’s hand you won’t get knocked over.” Callum

“It’s healthy – you get fresh air.”     Rhomey
