This week has been a week of clearing and preparing to move into our new classroom. The children have been very helpful in clearing the outdoors area and helping Miss Harris and Mrs Hyams in packing things in boxes and organising our resources. Our new classroom looks lovely and all being well we aim to be moving on the first Tuesday back with the children using the classroom for the first time on the Wednesday. Very exciting!

As Forest School was at school this week, we decided to make Chinese food and celebrate Chinese New Year. We decorated chinese lanterns and made a vegetable stir fry with hoisin sauce, ginger and garlic. I think we all agreed it tasted delicious despite the huge chunks of garlic and ginger!

We are looking forward to a fresh start in our new classroom. The children are now half way through their reception year so Miss Harris, and I will be supporting the children in encouraging them to be more independent and to take more responsibility for their learning from now on. We have already started to see a growing maturity amongst our hedgehogs and lots of fantastic independent learning.

As you may be aware, Mrs Oldroyd is sadly leaving us so the first week back will be her last in Hedgehogs. I know the children will miss her lots.

Have a good half term.
