The children this week have been firefighters, building their own fire engines and putting out the fires around our playground. We have also enjoyed doing some tree rubbings in our outdoor classroom.

Delivery Drivers Wanted!
Some of the children this week have been helping to keep their friends and the teachers fed by delivering McDonalds chicken nuggets to them around the playground. We were also lucky enough to explore the Year 2 playground for a morning.
We have been looking at sorting into groups this week. When we were in the Outdoor Classroom, we collected a range of natural objects and sorted them into different colour groups.

Even though the weather has changed this week, that hasn't stopped us getting outside and exploring. In the rain we have been mark making in paint and bubbles, whilst in the wind we have been exploring kites and parachutes!
This week we have been creating and moving though obstacle courses. We were travelling across stepping stones, going through tunnels and hoops, and jumping over hurdles.
