I just wanted to let you know I am back from maternity leave and so pleased to be back. I’m excited to we working with the children in Glendevon and Ochiltree classes this year. With me they will be focussing a lot on exploring the outdoors, what is growing in the Beatlie garden each season and what changes happen throughout the year in the garden and community too. We will be using our senses to explore and possibly create seasonal art as we investigate.
This term we have started to look at the flowers and fruit growing in the garden and the community. The children have already taken photos of the flowers they see, created a flower scavenger hunt from their photos for their peers to find them in the garden. We have discovered we have a lot of colourful flowers in the garden, especially pink. The children also have been making sensory flower bottles which they have enjoyed shaking and exploring the shapes and colours moving about in the water. I will keep you updated on our learning this term.
