This week in outdoor learning we looked at different variety's of birds, Phil had made a bird hunt for the children to explore, they had to find letters in the forest which would eventually reveal a word related to the outdoors. All the children enjoyed the challenge.
This week we had a visit from the Police, they talked about following rules and respecting adults. The Police also brought in some resources that they use to keep themselves and the public safe.
This week the children have had outdoor learning, Phil talked to the children about all different kinds of birds, what they eat and the types of environment you might find them in. Each child made a bird feeder and hung them up in the trees, so we could hopefully observe them over the next few weeks.
This week we have had a visit from Rachael Senior who works at Donaldsons as a vet. Rachael came to talk to the children in nursery and reception about what her job entails, she brought in a pretend dog who had a poorly leg and wore a cone around its neck to demonstrate to the children what a real dog would need if they had hurt their leg. The children dressed up in various vets outfits. The children asked questions and Rachael was able to answer and provide information about various animals.
This morning the children enjoyed travelling around the school making lots of different Easter artwork, we enjoyed working alongside different year groups.
This week we have been lucky enough to have a visit from Macy and Connors grandad who used to be a dog handler in the police force. He brought in some photographs, hats and dog socks to show the children. He talked about the dogs and how their sense of smell helps them catch people that are lost or people that need to be found.
