The children have made a positive start on their return to school. They listened carefully to one another as they shared their holidays news before writing about their favourite moments. It seems as though the Easter bunny was extremely busy! Through  our topic of minibeasts we looked at some features of insects and spiders and then painted a variety to display. We also discussed being ‘gentle giants’ around minibeasts and put this into practice during Forest School.  We have been focussing on minibeasts that creep and crawl and have fashioned fabulous snails in the style of Henri Matisse! The living eggs arrived on Monday and the children have had a wonderful few days watching the chicks hatch and naming them – do come in and meet our new fluffy family: Black widow, Flash, Ella, Captain America, Charlie, Steven, Josh, Tom and Rory! The chicks will be rehomed with the Njenga family at the end of next week.
