Pond life

By | July 5th, 2019|Outdoor Learning, Wild things, Year 5 2018-19|

It was all about the water this week in Wild Things.  One of the tasks was to remove the stones from around the pond in preparation for a new pond lining.  We know  it is  a habitat for newts however were unaware with how happy they were living among the pebbles  the Wild Things spotted many newts today and were able to observe them closely.

Many mindful moments …

Only one week until Venn Street Market which will be on Saturday 13 th July from 10 am.  We will be selling our herbs, flowers, plants and produce in gorgeous tins created by the Wild Things this afternoon.  We were watering generously today to encourage some extra deliciousness!

We were introduced to this idea by Natural Thinkers and it was great fun and well investigated today.  I don’t think the Wild Things hands’ have ever been so clean !

Year 3/4 have had so much fun today Teepee making in the playground. This was inspired by our Stone Age topic in term 1. We all helped to position the wooden posts and wrap the canvas around. We loved getting to go inside.

Summer in the garden

It’s finally heating up outside and the plants are loving the sun.  That includes the weeds!  The Wild Things spent the afternoon digging and heaving out the stubborn weeds from the beds, pots and paths. Time to water and harvest some more….
