This Week in School

Dear Parents

 

Apologies for the lack of an email update last week - this week is a Bumper Edition with last week's and this week's plans/news!

 

NOTICES

 

Health Notice: Over the weekend, there have been 2 reported cases of upset tummy/temperature in the Infant Community. Last week we had one case of a high temperature in the Children's House.

 

Half-Term: Next week (commencing 28th October) we will be closed for half term break. We shall reopen on Monday 4th November.

 

Parents in the Classroom: Many thanks to those of you who have come in to read a favourite book. Parents are always welcome to arrange a visit to share a book or other interest with the children. Please get in touch if you would like to come in.

 

 

WHAT'S GOING ON IN SCHOOL

 

Gardening and Cooking: Our very final harvest from the garden has been some fiery chilli peppers and (rather amazingly!) we have used the stalks from the chillis (which contain lactobacillus) to make yoghurt for our snack. 

 

Looking at more seeds we have been sprouting seeds (radish, cress and sunflower) and also trying them for snack. The children have carefully watered the seeds and have been fascinated by their daily progress. 

 

Bringing together our scientific exploration of Seeds and Air we observed 'helicopter' seeds from sycamore and maple trees and then tried making our own spinners which we tested in the garden.

 

Last week we read 'Leaf Man' by Lois Ehlert and made our own leaf pictures. This week we are making artistic creations using some of our collected Autumn treasures such as conkers and twigs.

 

We are learning some new Autumn Songs - 'Pumpkin Head' and 'Under the Harvest Moon'. Continuing with the Pumpkin theme we made delicious pumpkin pizzas - see attached photo.











 

We hope you all have a lovely week and a wonderful half term break next week.

 

Kind regards

Yvonne
