It’s Mental Health Awareness week!
There are a huge range of websites and apps that can support and advise about children’s Mental health. Over the next few days, we will be posting some of our Favourites:
Today’s website is MindEd for families. It’s a great website for safe and reliable advice about young people’s mental health, created by experts and parents together.
We have had a busy start in nursery this half term. We welcome 4 new starters into Class Potter, the children are quickly making friends and learning the nursery routines.
This half term the children have been very excited to discover all the different insects appearing outdoors. Each week we will explore a different insect using a book and a rhyme to develop the childrens interest. Over the course of the half term children will learn that information can not only be found in books but also on the computer as well. Outside we are encouraging the children to care for the animals and the environment. The children are already creating homes using the leaves, grass and twigs and observe with interest as the insects are exploring their new environments. We have already created lots of art and craftwork linked to insects.
Just before we broke up for Easter, we found out that we had been awarded our Silver Eco
Schools award. Well done to everyone involved.
We have already had busy start to the term in class Fletcher. It has been lovely to hear about all of the interesting activities you have been up to over the Easter holidays. The children have been full of beans!
Our enquiry this half-term is exploring what we can find in the garden during Spring. We have already hit the ground running by discussing what the children have seen over the holidays and looking at what is new in our outdoor area. This week we have been investigating plants and what they need to survive. We will be planting our own seeds in preparation for planting in the garden area. Any donations of soil, bark, seeds, plants, decorative pots will be greatly appreciated. We are hoping to turn our planters into a sensory area exploring taste, smell and touch; so we would gratefully accept any plants which could help with this. We will then be moving onto birds, nesting and mini-beasts.
