As the weather gets cooler, classes have been making a bug hotel in the new sensory garden. We have been exploring different plants and textures to make a place where insects can keep warm over the winter. We have used grasses, thistle down and a variety of plants to create a cosy environment for our tiny guests to stay in over the colder months.
We have also been setting up tasks for pupils to help keep our playground tidy, like raking the sandpit. These jobs are great experience and provide a fantastic opportunity to be involved in real work.
We have also been establishing bird feeders outside class and in the new sensory garden.
