Friendship – health and wellbeing

We have been learning about relationships, in particular looking at friendships.

We had to sort pictures to find friends.  Then we spoke about how friends can fall out.  Most importantly, we learned how friends can help each other and make things better to stop them from falling out.

It was a really interesting discussion and now we are trying to make sure that we don’t fall out with our friends.  If we do, we know what we can do to make up and be friends again.

Visit from the school nurse

We had a visit from the school nurse.  She came to speak to us about staying healthy and looking after ourselves.

She measured us to see how we were doing too.  It was great to have a visitor in class!  Zoe even read us a story about bucket filling and making sure we are kind.  Then she had us doing some activities too.

Design

There has been inspiration for lots of different things this week.  Lottie Mae has designed and made her own olden days school and classroom using the blocks.

Ewan has been making pizza after having a delicious school dinner.

Ollie designed his very own boat with lots of different things that move on it.

Using our imaginations, we have made fantastic things and have been inspired by many different situations.  We shall post up more as we see/do them, keep an eye out for updates!

Gruffalo foraging and cooking

We had a week where we read about The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.  We read The Gruffalo’s Child too.  We also heard them in Shetland Dialect.  That was very interesting as there were some words we had never heard before!

After that we went out foraging for ingredients to make some Gruffalo recipes.  Here are photos of us doing that.  We had great fun and used great language and role play used in our cooking and searching.

What the ladybird heard

We listened to the story called ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and then we followed it up with ‘What the Ladybird Heard Next’

It got us thinking that we could be quite creative and make some ladybird stones while we were doing outdoor learning.  We had great fun, here are some pictures.  We learned about colours, symmetry, numbers, ladybirds, language and many other things.  All whilst having fun and working with friends.

Imagination is key

We’ve used our imagination in many ways.  We’ve been explorers looking for treasure, finding long lost animals and even hiding from robbers.

Exploring hasn’t been everyone’s cup of tea so there have been some inventive cooking classes and meals made during our time outside.  From grilling sausages and pasta……

to making soup and other glorious recipes…….

with all ingredients foraged from the forest!

Then cooking hasn’t been for everyone either.  Being in the south mainland and having many farming opportunities, the hairst has been a very busy time!

Tractor and combine harvester designs were discussed before the final model chosen and made.  Crops were harvested and taken in and the staff were given many lessons on what to do and how to help with this busy time.

Next, the sheep have to be ca’ad…..
