What we have been doing in Parrots
What a busy Spring term we have had! We have completed 2 quests.
We can safely say that the children have loved our 'Out of this World' space quest during the first half term. The children have shown a real interest and curiosity about space and blown us away with their knowledge and understanding of things such as gravity, lunar modules and the difference between stars and planets, which we have seen through their imaginative and creative play.
We have all become healthy heroes during our second half term. The children are all fans of Supertato (and secretly mega fans of Evil pea.) We have learnt about the different ways we can keep healthy; including eating a healthy diet, exercising, keeping clean, catching our coughs and sneezes and the importance of drinking water and sleeping. We have also been busy readers and writers and learnt all about the whole part method in maths.
Have a look below at some of the things we have done.
