Term 3 in Glendevon

We can’t believe we’ve come to the end of another school term and it’s been another busy one in Glendevon. Our topic this term was My Body and we had lots of fun exploring this through lots of movement, exercise, personal care and relaxation sessions. We’ve also been really enjoying the better weather and have been getting out walking and enjoying the garden and the wider environment. We’ve taken part in lots of fun events such as Storytelling week, Science week and Fairtrade and this week we have been busy getting in the Easter spirit! We’ve enjoyed decorating our boiled eggs which we rolled down the hill and we had lots of fun going on an Easter egg hunt in the sensory garden and filling our baskets. We made our very own Easter chick baskets which are filled with goodies for us to enjoy and had a very special Easter snack today. Wishing everyone a happy holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone back ready for the summer term.
