Mini Forest Adventure (PM Week 4 )

This afternoon the children showed their amazing imaginations as they found treasure hidden in the Mini Forest. The girls worked together to scrape away the earth revealing a treasure chest (slab) in two weeks time they intend to continue the excavation to unearth the chest.

On arrival the children found that a lot of branches had been broken within the area and decided a tiger may have visited the site during the night snapping the branches as it climbed the trees. (Careful everyone in case it is sneaking back  tonight.) Two of the boy found large branches turning them into strimmer’s to cut the grass, a lovely discussion continued about working safely not cutting anyone with the strimmer and a need to wear “Ear defenders.”

The children have not had the opportunity to work in the mud and asked if they could have water with a little help from Miss Boyd (returning to the ECC to fill a large bottle) We were able to supply the water and enable the children to take part in a different experience. (A nice mud bath for one of the children.)

The children would like to know which of these  is the fastest: a cheetah, velociraptor or peregrine falcon? Our question for Thursdays session, looking  forward to finding out the answer.

(Apologies having problems downloading the photographs-please look in the Outdoor Book to see the fun experiences the children are taking part in.)

We would like to thank Mrs McCallion (Database Manager) for joining us in the ECC. The children enjoyed the interactive session sorting the fruit into smaller sections of information before using these to make a data chart of their favourite fruit.

Dazzling Around Dunlop

Dear Parent/Carer

Children are continuously learning and developing, therefore adults have an important role with ensuring they provide an enabling environment that supports children’s development in a range of ways.  It is also highly important to recognise and celebrate children’s achievements as this develops self-esteem, and positive reinforcement is key to helping children build their confidence.

Personal/Wider Achievements: Dazzling Around Dunlop

Help us to help your child celebrate their achievements in the wider world.

Here at Dunlop Primary School, we enjoy seeing your child learn, develop and achieve everyday but we appreciate they also learn, develop and achieve in a wide variety of ways, away from school. We therefore ask you share your child’s moments of success and achievements with us as this helps us to create a well-rounded and holistic picture of who your child really is.

To recognise and celebrate wider achievements away from the school, we would like to share your child’s achievements with the whole school community using the Dunlop Glow Blog.

The Dazzling Around Dunlop moments can tell us anything you would like to share with us, this may include: medals/awards/certificates, joining new clubs, Scout/Brownie club badges, out of school fundraising, sponsored events, musical accomplishments, competition entries/wins, drama/singing/dancing events or taking part in citizenship events eg caring for the environment.

The list of achievements your child makes will be endless!

As we wholeheartedly believe in recognising and celebrating achievements, we will also ensure that your child’s Dazzling Around Dunlop moments are recognised and celebrated at assembly. Having your child’s achievements promoted will stay with them for a significant period of time as children always love to embrace the recognition and praise they have received.

Please note, this is entirely optional but if you would like your child to have their Dazzling Around Dunlop moments recognised and celebrated, please send me a photograph and I will upload this to the Dunlop Glow Blog at the end of every month for everyone to see what your child has achieved.  I will repost this on the app and include my email address for you to submit your child’s Dazzling Around Dunlop achievements.

kind regards, Mrs Nouillan
