This week has been quite the week! As you know, we had Ofsted pay us a visit this week. Hedgehogs class were out at Forest School for the morning whilst they were here so we didn’t see the lady much, however all the children were very well behaved and gave a very good impression of our lovely school.

Forest school was a wet session this week. Despite all the rain, the stream was empty but the children made the most of what little water there was by jumping over the stream and getting very muddy. By the end, we had a few very cold hands but these were soon warmed up with a hot squash and a biscuit. We did some excellent measuring whilst there finding out the distance we could jump between the banks and how tall the children are when compared to the trees!

Most of the Hedgehogs have attended their first clubs this week. I know the children in my Tinkering Club really enjoyed it and I think the others did too. Thank you for sending in a little snack for them to have after school. They all needed a little something to keep them going until the end.

I have also been on a visit this week finding out how other EYFS settings do things. I have some great ideas I would like to put into practice for when we move into our new classroom. I was taken around the new classroom today and it looks lovely. It feels like a holiday lodge as it has sliding doors leading out to a verandah which overlooks the forest! I think we will be very happy there, especially when it’s warm and sunny!

Have a good weekend.
