The Bluebells experienced the rain last week. We made cloud viewers and went out to look at the sky and experience the rain on our face. The rain was not heavy so we did not manage to splash in any puddles. We also explored how rain is created by completing the rain in a jar science experiment.
We explored wind whilst being outdoors. We experienced the wind on our face and how when it is strong it may blow objects around outside. We made our own wind sock to explore what would happen on a windy day. We took our wind socks outside and watched as the wind blew the tissue paper streamers at the bottom. The wind can sometimes blow rubbish into our outdoor area and we are responsible citizens and will tidy up.

The Planets class loved today’s 50 Things Outdoors activity. We took our socks and shoes off and experienced placing our bare feet on the earth and grass. We talked about how it felt and shared our likes and dislikes.
Winter is here so we decided to made a birdfeeder to put in the garden to feed the birds. We used cheerios and threaded them onto a long pipe cleaner. Some people were able to independently try this confidently, Some were holding the pipe cleaner and staff were supporting them to pull them along the pipe cleaner once on it.

The Bluebells class participated in one of our 50 Things Outdoor challenges today. We took the opportunity of a rainy day and experienced a rainstorm whilst being appropriately dressed for the weather. We raided the used and found box for a selection of wellies and went to a nearby postbox and sent our Santa letters. We all loved being outside in the rain and jumping in the puddles!

The Bluebells class enjoyed using autumn leaves during our art lesson. WE made funny faces and gave them crazy hair using leaves that had fallen from the trees.
