Turtle class had a great time out on the field exploring the trees, they had to ‘look up’, ‘feel’ and ‘smell’. They made rubbings of the bark and found blossom, buds and leaves. They were able to identify wide, thin, tall and short trees. Turtle class always love learning outdoors!
In Turtle class, we LOVE going out to Forest School on the bus. As well as climbing trees and stomping through the mud, we like climbing the ladder to rescue animal toys, splashing a stick in the pond and playing on the new ‘tree castle’. Here are some photos from earlier in the year to […]

We had a great time in Turtle class learning about winter in other countries. We played with ice and snow in Iceland, chilled out on the beach in Australia and helped to paint a beautiful blue and silver ice mural.
We have really enjoyed learning to play the steel drums this half term. We’ve had lots of practice at using percussion instruments to tap out a steady beat and join in with action songs. We have also learnt to hit the right note on the steel drum to play along with some of our favourite […]
