Another delightful week filled with ore and wonder! Meadows have been super excited learning about the effects of stormy weather and have especially enjoyed discovering all things ‘spiral’! As there is so much more to discover, we have decided to continue with our research next week too!
We went for a walk into our school’s forest and realized that there was not much for the birds to eat, so the children have asked to make bird feeders next week- how compassionate!
