The Learners have been out and about this week and have enjoyed a lot of outdoor learning.
This half-term our Science topic is Plants. On Monday, set with pots, compost, trowels and seeds we enjoyed planting our own herbs and flowers in our outdoor area. The sun was shining and we worked together to dig, plant and sow. The children had such enthusiasm, we definitely have some budding gardeners in Learners Class.
On Tuesday, we picked the BEST day to visit the forest, the weather was warm and Spring was most certainly in the air. With our hedgehog hero hats on, we began to assess our school surroundings for encouraging hedgehogs. We listed potential hazards and also things that were already hedgehog friendly. We delighted in making some warm, cosy areas that hedgehogs might like to visit when they come out of hibernation – we are expecting some actual hedgehog houses to arrive soon and are very excited about this!
On Wednesday, we started writing our stories, based on the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. The writing produced so far has been wonderful! The children have been working really hard to use interesting vocabulary to engage their reader. Early next week they will be reading their stories to Pioneers. They are in for a real treat!
Spring is on the way and we have been so lucky to have had lots of outdoor learning this week.
Learners love to learn!
