Making Toast

We have been enjoying toast in the Red Family!

Exploring Our Allotment 


We have been exploring our allotment, looking at all the different vegetables. We have dug over a large part of our Nursery patch ready for planting some onions!

Next we are also going to get a fruit tree to watch how it grows. Hopefully we will be able to enjoy some of our own fruit and veg at snack time soon!


We used the strands from the fibre-optic lights for threading. The children were very good at handling the beads carefully and adding them to their work.

Making Bird Feeders

We made bird feeders using lard, bird seed, raisins and pine cones.

The children talked about what different animals need and how we can care for them.

We had to warm the lard in the microwave and we put raisins in all the gaps in the pine cones. Next we pushed the lard on, keeping all the raisins stuck in. We dipped the pine cones in the bird seed and they were ready to hang up!

Exploring Construction Resources

Riley was building with the large foam LEGO blocks.

"Look a baby dinosaur" he said.

He then added some more blocks and said "Now it's growing bigger!"

Corey was using the wheels and cogs.

"Look, I've made a big robot."

Corey then showed us how he could make the cogs turn.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

We have been learning about the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Red Family have enjoyed dressing up and acting out the story with their friends!
