Look at the fun we had on our class trip to the Hidden Woods!

We teamed up with Hawk class for our Outdoor Learning day. We experienced lots of fun activities all based on the great outdoors. Look at the fun things we got up to!

We have had the most fantastic curriculum focus week and the children have been busy, busy, busy! This week we have baked mini harvest loaves, created art work out of fruit pieces using Giuseppe Arcimboldo as inspiration, had an informative and inspiring trip to Hauser and Wirth, Mr Kimber came to visit and brought us some yummy cheese and we designed and created our own smoothies. The week culminated with a showcase in which children worked with an adult to chop and blend their fruit to make their smoothies. It was wonderful to see so many parents and members of the wider family in attendance.
