Wet Play in our Garden
We found some dead frogs in our pond. The children were fascinated them. The adults helped the children to look a bit closer by holding them up and putting them on a white background. Sandy and Lisa were a little unsure about picking them up but the children were really supportive saying “go on, you can do it”, “well done, you did it” The children noticed they were different sizes and colours, we wondered if they had died because the pond had frozen over when it had snowed. One child said “we can make them better” so we talked a little about what it means when we say something is dead, they thought about this and some children commented and agreed “it’s sad”.
At soft play, children are developing their physical abilities through movement. They improve their core strength, coordination and can challenge themselves to take risks in a safe place.
The children in Class 3 have enjoyed playing in the snow, watching it fall from the sky and running through it. Lots of excited people outside, both children and adults.
Class 3 have been looking at maps

Class 3 have been talking about our 5 senses. We have been using our noses to smell herbs-mint, coriander and basil.
'Mini Beast Hunt'
In class 3, we have been going on a mini beast hunt. The children looked high and low and used their binoculars search. We marked off the ones we found, the children were very excited when they found one.
