Flamingo class have had a great start to the year, we have 8 boys in class that have been excited to get started on our new topic ‘The Secret Garden’. We have already been very busy learning all of our new friend’s names and finding our new classroom. We have been doing lots of fun activities linked to Flamingos, including sharing stories, Attention Bucket activities themed around flamingos and making some lovely flamingo art.

We are very lucky to be swimming this term, we all had great fun exploring the pool at Redwood Park Academy.  We have all grown in confidence in the pool already and we are great at following the rules to stay safe when getting in and out of the pool. We really enjoy using the foam woggles in the pool, Muhammad has been very brave and coming away from the edge of the pool on his own with a float. We have also been swimming as fast as we can and seeing who can make the biggest splash by kicking our legs in the water.

We really enjoyed the introduction to our new topic on topic launch day, we went around different areas of the school to explore aspects of the new topic including minibeasts, weather, plants and growing vegetables. We really enjoyed looking for bugs in the environmental area, Josef was great at looking through his magnifying glass to see what he could find. We also loved getting messy and exploring different textures in the mud kitchen.

We can’t wait for lots of new adventures this term and really getting stuck into the new topic.
