Year 1 have been enjoying using our problem solving and team working skills to build tents and dens: inside the classroom and outside too. The tent-building practice came in useful on our fantastic Outdoor Day, when we camped out on the school field for the day. We hunted for bugs, toasted marshmallows on the fire and even ate our lunch in our dens!
Maple class have also been busy tidying up and preparing the outdoor area, so we can use it all year round. This is a wonderful additional space for practical activities, such as ramp building and construction, and imaginative play too. Here are two of our classmates fishing!
Imaginative play continues inside. Our class restaurant ‘The world famous Maple Kitchen!’ helps children develop their speaking, listening and questioning skills. “What would you like to order?”
