This week we have done so much! We had harvest festival on Monday where the children showed off the art work they have been doing and sang ‘Dingle Dangle Scarecrow’. They all enjoyed performing and I was very proud of them all.

On Tuesday we played outside for most of the day which was just as well considering the awful weather at the end of the week. We collected some woodland items from the woods then returned to the school for hot chocolate and marshmallows. We put up a tent and the children just enjoyed taking some of their learning outside.

As it has been Healthy Sparkwell week, the children made fruit squash using water and chopped fruit and fruit kebabs with Mrs Oldroyd. We have also talked about the importance of getting a good nights sleep and looked at where our food comes from - whether it comes from a plant or an animal and looked at different food groups. The children were very knowledgeable about their food.

As you can imagine,by the time we got to the zoo visit, all the hedgehogs were very tired and the excitement of going on the coach quickly turned into a need for a sit down and a biscuit! We did have a lovely afternoon and playing on the tyres in the play area was possibly the hilight of the afternoon!

I am exhausted so the children certainly must be. Looking forward to seeing them again after a much needed rest for us all!

Have a great half term.
