Hello to all my F1s! I can’t wait to see you all tomorrow and find out all your exciting news about the holidays! We are going to have so much fun especially with all the new activities situated in our continuous provision. But best of all… we have lots of new friends for you to meet and you will also get to see your old friends who are now in F2.
Sleep tight and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Good luck!

Goodbye

It’s like Mother Nature knew it was our last Tree-mendous Tuesday of this year and she brought Mr Sunshine out to celebrate and ensure our day was super special. All the children had shiny little faces due to the copious amounts of sun cream that had been smothered all over them in preparation for the scorching heat and their heads were crowned in summer hats and caps. But we weren’t in the sun for long before we made it into our second home and the trees were there as always to protect us from the sun’s glare.
Lots of our favourite memories were shared during our walk. Hayden and Dylan sang the Bear Hunt and accompanied our chatter about our favourite Tree-mendous Tuesday adventures. Avah-Mae talked about making Gruffalo heads out of clay and Darcie remembered using sticks for his purple prickles. George reminisced about the pitter patter of the heavy rain on our parachute that protected us from the elements; Ollie talked about eating a biscuit ‘with all his friends’ on the hay bales that the farmer had kindly left out for us to take a rest on! Lexi liked making the bird feeders ready for the hungry birds to feed on, Sofia loved the toast at the café and Olivia talked about running down (and up) the hill! Charlie M’s favourite adventure involved minibeast hunting which is no surprise because he is our very own Dr. Doolittle and today he reinforced this by delicately holding a worm and later on in the adventure a snail! I know the minibeasts of Langold woods will miss your chatter as you ambled along their habitat stopping to say hello!
Today was filled with a new experience as we sat on our special Tree-mendous Tuesday mats in the shade and Mrs Fenton produced hot dog sausages in bread rolls with red sauce, accompanied by juice and then we set up our tee-pee and sat inside for a biscuit. We had talked about the different types of butterflies before we left school and looked at a huge identification mat so we knew the types we were likely to find. We saw lots of Marbled Whites and Ringlets. In fact they followed us along as we walked through the meadows making sure we were happy and then they would fly away in the sky to look for their friends.
This year has been so amazing and the children have gained so much confidence from their Tree-mendous Tuesday explorations as well as learning lots of new vocabulary. We have been physical by running through the woods and climbing logs, we have used our socialisation and communication skills sharing conversations and experiences with our friends and our imagination has come to life as we dreamed of monsters, dragons and trolls that were obviously behind every tree and in every stream. We used our problem solving skills to cross little streams, climb logs, build animal habitats and fairy houses and we learnt to be kind to each other, living creatures and our environment. We have learnt so many life lessons to carry with us throughout our lives.
I hope these amazing experiences stay with you when you are big and grown up and you’ll never lose your sense of awe and wonder.
Good luck next year to our big nursery children. We know you’ll be amazing in F2 and to our smaller children, we will see you on the same Tree-mendous day next term!
Big hugs, Miss Frisby, Mrs Fenton, Mrs P and Mrs Bacon x

Mrs P had planted some rhubard in our foundation garden and it was ready to taste. There were some very funny faces pulled eventhough there was a bit of sugar on to make it taste better. Ollie pulled the funniest face and said it was spicy!

Wow! Look at our garden now! We have huge sunflowers that we have grown and they are bigger than the children. Strawberries have also come out to say hello along with the rhubarb! And our flowers and herbs are smelling beautiful. Aren’t we all so clever for growing and looking after them? There are lots of green fingered children in Langold!

Meeting the animals at Aston Springs Farm

Posted by Miss Frisby | Posted in General News | Posted on 10-07-2016

We got to meet all the animals on the farm including the donkeys, chickens, goats, sheep and pigs. We even got to feed them and Kate one of the friendly members of staff was on hand to tell us lots of interesting facts about them all. Ask me and see what I can remember.
Some of our friends got to hold a chicken and I’m sure the chickens loved the cuddles! The goats were eager to meet us all and were very greedy and tried to eat all our food! One of them nearly ate Stephen’s hat! The piglets were so cute and ran up to the fence to say hello although Charlie B and Kayden K liked the Daddy pig the best. Oink oink!

Creative clay animals at Aston Springs Farm

We all got creative and went to the pottery studio and met Sarah who helped us make our very own clay animal. We had to roll out our clay and use leaves to make patterns in it. We then cut out a square and made an animal of our choice. Ava made a pig and there was a donkey too. What animals can you see?

Pond dipping at Aston Springs Farm

What a fabulous time we had pond dipping with our fishing nets and identifying lots of creepy crawlies in the wildlife pond. We found tadpoles, some smooth newts and even some water boatmen. The children were amazed by what they could see and Sofia found the biggest tadpole which made her day! They were all so engrossed and captivated by what they put into their tubs. They showed their friends and then put them back in their home to swim away.

Our F2s to be played in the big playground at lunch time and all the other children were so kind to them. They made lots of new friends and all the teachers and mid-day supervisors were there to make sure everyone was happy.
It looks like you had fun.
