Lifeguard Visit

 This morning we were visited by two Lifeguards from Ledbury Swimming Pool.  Tom and Emily spoke to the children abot water safety.  This ties is very well with our current Summer focus on 'Water' which has developed from the children's interests.

We thought about where we might find water and guessed at swimming pools, paddling pools in our gardens, the sea and rivers.

Wormeries

 This half term, we've been exploring 'Minibeasts'.  Having shown a particular interest in worms, we began to think about how worms move through the ground....this lead us on to the subject of wormeries.  This morning, we took a small group of children to the allotment where we dug for worms.

While there, we used our senses to think about what was around us in the environment.

We smelled mint leaves growing on our plot:

Egg Hatching Project

During the last two weeks of the Spring term, we took part in a egg hatching project at Busy Bees.  Before this, we discussed eggs and how to keep them safe at circle time - Jodie showed the children a real egg which they carefully passed around the circle, making sure it wasn't dropped.  We thought how we could protect this egg, should it be dropped on the floor.  Here are some of the answers:

"We could put it in a box" - Stella, aged 4

French Breakfast

This morning, the children at Breakfast Club enjoyed our first themed breakfast.  Children tucked in to a hearty breakfast consisting of croissants, pain au chocolat, brioche, a variety of conserves and strawberries.  

There was also fresh bread courtesy of Peter Cook of Peter Cooks Bread (http://www.petercooksbread.co.uk/)  Peter contacted us on Twitter offering us some of his Ledbury Loaves when he heard news of our French breakfast.  

 

The children enjoyed a fabulous morning before school and we heard lots of 'thank yous' too - lovely manners!  

 

The event was such a success that we are already thinking ahead to the next one which will be held next term.  

 

Hatching Eggs!

 

 

We are currently taking part in a hatching eggs project which began on Monday 31st March.  Our first chick hatched overnight on the first night but today the children watched intently as the second chick emerged from its egg.
