Red Skippers Parent Plan September 2019

Making and describing the properties of 3D shapes using spaghetti and saltdough!

We have been looking very closely at the patterns, textures and colours of leaves

Following our observations we pulled, pushed and squeezed clay to make these beautiful clay leaf pots.

After 29 days of watching and waiting, our poults finally arrived!

We have two very happy turkey chicks running and flapping around in their run.

Barton Turf Adventure Centre

We had a wonderful day¬†at the Barton Turf Adventure Centre¬†looking for Toad Hall, hunting the riverbank for Ratty’s house and exploring the rivers and dykes.

Fran, Louis and Robin arrived at our school in a tractor pulling an enormous trailer!

We clambered on and travelled through out beautiful countryside, along lanes and tracks until we arrived in a field full of lettuce. During the morning we found out how lettuce is harvested, how wheat is planted, fed and cut, how machinery prepares the field and then plants seed potatoes and we got very close to an incredibly noisy herd of Aberdeen Angus cows, calves and a bull! Thank you so much to Neatishead Hall Farm for teaching us so much and for taking us around your farm.

We are all enjoying our new topic “The Wind in the Willows”

We even chose group names from characters in the story: Moles, Rats and Badgers!

Easter in the Red Skippers is very exciting!

From writing the Easter story, creating Easter cards, writing instructions to make Easter nests and Easter singing, we are extremely busy!
