Gardening is fun when we do it together

The children in Foundation 5 have recently had the special opportunity of learning something new from some of the experts in class 3.
They came to share their knowledge of plants with us and helped our children to understand what plants need to grow and live.
They then planted some rhubard with us and taught us how to take care of it. We can´t wait to try some once it grows!

Painting with feathers

Have you ever tried painting with feathers?
Children love everything about feathers from the colours to how they feel all soft and fluffy.

It´s nice to explore with the things in our environment and that´s exactly what they did. The children in Nursery 1 explored by using the feathers to paint with. By swirling and mixing the different types of paint, they were able to create different patterns and textures.

Painting strengthens fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination so open up a bag of feathers and have fun!
