What's happening NOW at Blue Grass Purple Cow
After a busy start to the Summer with two weeks of Blue GRASStonbury, Butterflies, then Bees, we move on to one of our favourite topics Water, Water Everywhere.
The week will consist of exploring and experimenting with different ways to use water and how water helps us. The Brook will be looking at rivers, waterfalls, canals and reservoirs, while The Orchard explore washing, splashing in big soapy puddles and, how water helps our plants. The Meadow will be exploring the sensory approach; different coloured water each day, emptying and filling and, having a paddle with their feet.
Wednesday 8th Aug and Friday 10th August are Water Days.
On our Water Day we will be having different stations of water fun and you can guarantee we won’t be staying dry! You should already have received an email with information but, we kindly request that you bring a labelled bag of spare clothes for your child on these days.
Jenny and Kori recently attended Forest School training and it has been a big focus of our outdoor practice over the past few weeks. We hope the children have shared some of their outdoor learning experiences with you or that you have seen pictures in their Day in the Life Reports and on ParentZone. We are continuing to use Forest School to influence our outdoor practice of using natural resources. Jenny has also created a display in Reception, with photos and examples. Please take a moment to have a look.
I hope you all looking forward to a fun, wet week next week!
