Easter 2019

It is Spring time and we have been delighted to see birds beginning to make a nest in our bird box. We have noticed leaves coming on our Ash tree and our daffodils look so bright and pretty. We were thrilled to hold baby chicks and watch tadpoles swimming, when they visited our class and we have planted broad beans in our garden.

We have been finding out about Easter celebrations and traditions too. We planted pansies in tea cups to decorate the tables for our Community Tea Party but our absolute favourite event was our annual Easter egg hunt!


We’re going on a Bear Hunt

The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning and acting out the story of ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt.’ We have explored new vocabulary, sequenced events, developed wonderful artwork, drawn maps, written captions and discussed characters’ feelings.

Our most memorable activity was a bear hunt to Offwell woods, however. We found long, wavy grass, thick oozy mud, a shallow, narrow stream (so no wet feet), a big, dark forest……………….and a bear!

We lay paw-print trails for our friends to follow in the woods, so that they could find the bear too. He really was hidden inside his tree-trunk ‘cave.’ It was great fun!

Litter Pick

We went to the village playing field and did a ‘litter pick’ in summer 2019. We found lots and lots of plastic!
