Our Easter Egg Hunt

We have spent the last couple of weeks designing and making plant pots. We used the bottom part of a plastic bottle to make our plant pot.

We learned about where house plants come from and we each chose a house plant for our plant pot.

It's got acorns, seed heads and brown leaves. I made a berry and it fell down into my pond.



In my garden there is an acorn, a river, a mushroom, berries, a rosehip berry and a pine cone. I liked making my Autumn garden.



It's a forest. It's dead leaves because it's Autumn. I made some little red berries. The leaves are dead and brown.



I made a mushroom. I always find mushrooms in Autumn. There's an acorn, a big fruit tree, an apple, blackberries on every fruit tree. I have a golden lake.

This week's Outdoor Learning
We collected seeds and used them to decorate the initial letters of our names.
We peeled apples, cut them in half and found the seeds.
We had so much fun on our Woodland Day. We made our own charcoal on the fire and then used the charcoal to draw pictures on to material. We looked for clues in the wood to help us identify the animals that might live there. We also went on a minibeast hunt. Finally we made models out of clay of some of the creatures that live in our wood. What a great day!

Friday 18th September 

Star of the Week:  Tilly for amazing and detailed art work.

Outdoor Learning

We have been looking at plant identification through leaves and seeds. In particular we have looked at acorns and blackberries. 

We made purple paint with blackberries and made green paint with leaves to paint our flowers. Flowers are another way to identify plants.

Our Letters and Pictures

We have been working alongside Windermere Health Centre to write letters to people in our community who may be feeling lonely and missing loved ones at this time. We hope that our letters and pictures will make them smile.
