Below are some fabulous, enriching experiences that you could enjoy with your child.
The children have had a fantastic time at Forest Schools. They have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the natural environment and engaging in a range of learning experiences including making faces and animal homes with natural materials, finding, observing and describing the features of minibeasts, and printing and rubbing a variety of different leaves.
This is a great opportunity to begin to prepare the outdoor area ready for Spring time. Thank you to all the willing volunteers who attended the morning and for the contributions or seeds and compost we received. The parents of the children at North Featherstone Junior and Infants are so generous. We hope you can see from the video below the fun we had and just what we managed to achieved in such a small amount of time. Please join us on our next grounds morning in the summer term.
The children were thrilled to observe the variety of owls that Chris brought in to introduce to us. He shared a wealth of information about barn owls, screech owls, eagle owls and burrowing owls. Engaging with the owls and watching them fly was incredible.
Babies, Growth and Change
The children have been learning about what babies need, how to care for a baby, about changes, and similarities and differences between babies and children. They were delighted when Aleeyah's mum and her younger sister came in for a visit, to support learning on this theme.
The children had a fabulous session exploring and observing changes and signs of autumn, in the school grounds,
The children had a great time completing an obstacle course. This was aimed at developing their gross motor and turn taking skills, and it was also super fun!
