Week Ending 16th October 2009

Netball, soccer and tennis have all been enjoyed by some of our children this week. Our new netball court is also well used at lunch times, with enthusiastic participation from all classes.

This week we have been planting our orchard - do enjoy looking at our apple, pear and quince trees by the pond. Children from all classes helped, and were amazed to note that the depth of the holes was greater than the height of a Hedgehog!

Our new games room has been delivered and is about to be built, ready for use next half term. It will be "home" for our large snooker table, and a selection of smaller games.

The foundation subject this week has been design and technology. Rabbits children used a variety of woodwork tools to create something rather special... they loved the new "3D spectacles." Younger children made homes from a selection of boxes and materials. there hasn't been much "room" in Squirrels this week! Hedgehogs has a wonderful aroma, from the lovely lavender branches dangling across the room. A different aroma came from Badgers, due to the fillings from the delicious sandwiches they made.
