Spring Walks

 Since the start of the Summer term, our focus has been 'Ready, Steady, Grow' which has developed from the children's interests before Easter.  As part of this, we have been out and about hunting for signs of Spring.  We've enjoyed visiting our Wildflower garden just off the Town Trail and walking around New Mills to see if there is any frog spawn in the little stream.


Last week, we explored the school grounds using the iPads and digital cameras to photograph our findings - the children also enjoyed taking photos of each other!  On our way, the children were encouraged to use their senses and talk about what they could see, hear and smell around them.  First of all, we heard our footsteps as we marched across the playground.  Then we stood very still, listening for environmental sounds around us.


"I can hear the birds singing" - Charlie, 4

"There's a dog barking" - Leo, 4

"There's more birds now." - Lola, 2

"I can hear a car on the road." - Mason, 3

"What are those birds saying?" - Charlie, 4


We used spotter sheets to record what we had spotted and to practise our mark making skills.  The children were pleased to have found many signs of Spring including daffodils, blossom, frog spawn in the pond, buds, minibeasts and birds collecting nesting materials.
