Week Ending 30th April 2010

This week Hedgehogs and Squirrels have been investigating the topic of "Sound". The children enjoyed making music with instruments that they had made, ranging from guitars to drums and shakers.

Rabbits Class have been to space! They have made a 3D display of planets that is very informative. Badgers Class have been finding out about bones and muscles. In Pre-School, Hamsters have been sharing lots of new books about firemen and their engines.

Our allotment has been planted with a variety of vegetables, that will be used in the School kitchen. Some shoots are peeping through already, thanks to the warmer weather. We are hoping for a bumper crop of strawberries this year, as we have several containers with healthy plants.

The chickens are settling in well, and seem to be very happy in their new environment. Each day, children from different classes tend to them, and gather the eggs. Names for them will be announced soon, as the children have held their own voting ballot - much more "eggciting" than a political one!
