Our PSHE learning is focusing on feelings this term. We have thought about how our behaviours can affect how other people feel and how other people can affect how we feel.
This term we have been ensuring our garden is looking healthy. The potatoes, garlic, onion and beans are all growing ... some faster than others. Augustus has been making sure our bulbs we planted earlier are growing and just about to bloom. We have started planting our seeds ready for outdoors in the spring. So far we have carrots, chilli peppers and assortment of flowers on the go.
Next we are taking a look at herbs. What they look, smell and feel like. We will be investigating how they are used both as flavourings and medicines as well as planting our own.
During the winter months we have been experimenting with tie dyes, making our own water paints and hope to do different prints using natural ingredients for example: beetroot, onion skins and flower petals.
Our animal care now includes four guinea pigs from Fistral and Harley Bays classes. The children enjoy making toys, ensuring their homes are clean, preparing their food and giving them hugs and exercise.
