We had a lovely final Discovery Cafe of the academic year. Again, a huge thanks to Debbie, Dawn and Mrs Graves with Max.
Today, we enjoyed our trip at Gressenhall with Stibbard. We had to help Cinderella and Jack (from Jack and the Beanstalk) find all of the special objects from the fairytales that the Wicked Witch had hidden!
The children were exceptionally behaved and had a fantastic day!
We have had a lovely morning at the Tennis Festival. We explored lots of tennis skills and worked really hard at all of the activities.
This half term, we have been learning all about the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset. We have learnt about the brain and how we can adopt a growth mindset in all aspects of our learning. This week we wanted to show this through Art and ‘sprinkled’ all things we would like to learn into our brains and discussed how a positive mindset would help us to achieve our goals.
What a busy week! We harvested our potatoes and then decided to make our own Potato Soup! We looked at recipes, wrote a shopping list and wrote letters asking for some electrical equipment to help us! We learnt about cleanliness and safety whilst cooking. We took turns and listened to each other’s ideas throughout. We then enjoyed the soup outside in the sunshine ☀️ We even wrote our own recipes and instructions so other people could try to make it too!
This morning, we found a frog in our outdoor area. We discussed if it was a frog or a toad and how we know the difference. We researched what they needed to survive and made it a little home! We wrote signs and captions to let others know what we had found. We were really careful, so we didn’t frighten our new friend. #responsiveplanning #children’sinterests
