Good afternoon everyone,
I hope that you all had a good Bank Holiday. Even if it was the coldest May bank holiday on record. I also hope that those of you who managed to see the art gallery enjoyed your visit. If you haven’t seen the gallery the video is posted on the blog under 30th April.
As we move into warmer weather, and those dark cold mornings have disappeared, our thoughts turn to the start of spring and summer. We follow the seasons with the children and spring is an ideal starting point as children start to see and understand the changes that take place in nature; it is also an opportunity for children to become familiar with the joys and wonder of the new season.
Spring is also a great time to explore nature with your children, a nature walk is a great way to introduce children to their immediate environment and inspire a love and interest in the natural world. Children will love to see what is growing and living around them. Why not grab some magnifiers and have a look at just who is living right on your doorstep.
As it is has been fairly cold this year spring changes are a little late, however now the trees are full of blossom, birds are returning to their nests, mini-beasts are out in the garden and the earth is waking up again. Children really enjoyed hearing all about the signs of spring and then going outdoors to spot them for themselves.
Many children then went on to draw and write about what they had seen.
Red class were busy with clay. For many of our two year olds this was their first encounter and they were totally involved in the experience.
Have a lovely evening.
