Goldfinch Class had a fantastic time this week, visiting Kew Gardens on a beautiful day.
Whilst in the Palm and the Lilly Pad houses, the children discovered what it feels like to be in a tropical climate.
They spotted banana and papaya plants growing, and were excited to see the fruits on the trees.
Inside they experienced the heat and humidity, and when they stepped outside, they found it cold!
More photos to follow!!
On Friday, we also had a performance from Rocksteady, which is an organisation that offers music tutoring. Following this, the children were given a letter that has all the details for sign-up.
Next week, following their trip to Kew, Goldfinch will be creating their own mini-biodome. Please give your child an empty 1.5 litre plastic water bottle. We will be planting some seeds in it, watering it and sealing it. Your child will bring it home, and you can watch it grow, together.
Don't open it, as it will be recycling the air and water!
Goldfinch Class have had an amazing start to the year! We have been reading a book called Happy to help us focus on mindfulness and being happy. The children enjoyed going into the Wildlife area not only to enjoy the lovely weather, but they also used their senses to really focus and become more mindful of their surroundings. Here is our class display in the corridor with all the wonderful poems the children have written about what makes them happy, along with some lovely drawings. They did a fantastic job and have shown they can be incredibly creative.
Here are some examples (the whole board display is a pano, and it is not actually crooked!):
