Little Owls – Muddy Puddle Walk

The children from Little Owls enjoyed their walk around the village and were very happy when we found the biggest puddle!  Thank you to everyone who has handed in their sponsor money for our Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle Walk raising money for Save the Children.  Please hand in any money raised to a member of staff.  Many thanks.


Little Owls – Obstacle Course

Taking advantage of the lovely weather we have had this week we decided to create an obstacle course in the playground.  The children have been crawling through tunnels, climbing up and sliding down, putting hoops over their heads,  weaving through the cones, throwing beans bags in the baskets and finally standing on the correct number given by staff before starting all over again!




Little Owls – Jack and the Beanstalk

The children at Little Owls are retelling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.  They have been able to recall the story in sequence and which characters are in the story.  The children have also enjoyed using various textures and materials to make the story come to life in the room.

The beans are growing well inside and the children have explained why the beans are growing better inside compared to outside.  Everyone has taken their sunflowers home and the competition is on to see who can grow the biggest sunflower!


Little Owls – Growing

We had a very exciting thing happen last weekend, our beans grew very fast!  We have been measuring them this week to see how much they have grown throughout the week, an amazing 11-13cm in two days!  We transplanted some to our outside area and the children have been predicting which beans will grow the biggest, inside or outside.

Little Owls – revisit/reflect and Easter

This week we have been reflecting on what we have learnt and consolidated our learning.  The children have also enjoyed making Easter bunnies, daffodils and eggs using different materials.  The children have been making nests for their eggs using rice krispies which were eaten for snack!

The tadpoles have been moved to their new home outside and we look forward to returning after the holidays to see how much they have grown.

After the Easter holidays our focus will be growing and living things.  Thank you to those of you who have given us seeds to grow.  We will be planting and talking about what the seeds need to grow and making our own garden beds.

We wish you a happy Easter and we hope the sun will shine! We return on Wednesday 19th April.
