Welcome to Mole Class!
Empty Classroom Day!
Mole class had a super day learning outdoors! We created tally charts on the playground, using chalk, and collected our own data to fill them! They also thought of questions about their charts that they could ask other children to answer. After play they had a go at orienteering. They had to follow a simple trial then direct their partner through it blind folded!
To conclude the day, Moles walked down to St Gregory's church and launched their teddies off the church tower to test how well their parachutes worked.
It really was a fantastic day with lots of laughter, fun, smiles and learning!
Mole Class worked alongside Squirrel class to make bookmarks to sell at the Rural Pastimes event. It was so lovely to see how well the children worked together and how enthusiastic they were to complete the task.
This children will be learning all about Australian animals and making a class fact file about them. They will also be learning some Australian songs and having a go at their own aboriginal art.
Here's to an exciting half term!
Planting Wild Seeds
Mole Class, with the help of Squirrel Class, planted some wild seeds sent to us from Kew Gardens. We planted them in our narute area to attache bees and insects. Bees and insect are very important as they help pollinate other plants and help them reproduce.
Squirrel class prepared the soil by using fork to turn it up so the seeds could easily find a space to growrow. Moles them sorinked the seens onto the ground and covered it up and added water.
Finally we made a bee house and hung it from a south facing , sunny area to give the bees a nice, safe place to go.
