Term 2 has begun and we have been very busy in Willow Class. We have thought about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night, as well as why we have poppies for Remembrance. Abby from the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust visited us for an afternoon all about Autumn and hedgehogs. We got outside to make a hedgehog home and then had a crafty session with some of the leaves that we had created!
One morning last week, we visited Spalding Library. We heard stories from the lovely staff there, went on a character hunt and even made our very own bookmarks! Some of us were able to borrow a book if we had brought along our borrowing cards. There was lots of excitement from the start about the bus journey, as lots of us had never travelled on a coach before! What a great morning! Thank you to all of the staff at the library who helped to make our visit so enjoyable.
Since starting back, all members of Willow Class have been working hard and learning all about each other whilst making new friends. We have explored lots of our new learning areas and have particularly enjoyed the mud kitchen. Mrs Hazlehurst has been kept fully topped up with 'Muddy coffee' recipes and much more!
This week we began to talk about Harvest and started to learn a song ready for our Harvest sing along later in the term. We have also made some carrot soup, after harvesting our own carrots from the school garden and preparing them ready for cooking. We explored our school kitchen for the first time and look forward to cooking up more tasty recipes in there!
We explored the weather, in particular, a windy day, where we made some wind toys and tested them in the outdoor area. We have made some pumpkin muffins, bread rolls and enjoyed eating them - very tasty indeed!
We have been on a bug hunt and found lots of mini beasts in our local environment which we have looked closely at and talked about what we have found.
Willow Class have used ‘The Colour Monster’ to talk about their feelings and described when and how they have felt in the past. We have discussed ideas about what we can do if we are feeling sad, lonely or angry. Lots of children felt loved and calm, which was brilliant to hear!
