Week 1
Welcome back, we hope you have all had a fantastic Easter holiday! Starting the week off, the children have begun researching all about the Victorians, learning particularly what a Foundling Hospital was and why they were built.

As part of PHSE this week, Willow class took part in a team-building activity. Having been given only one picture each from a story book, which they could not show to anyone else in their group, the children had to describe what was in their picture and then arrange themselves based on what order they think the story should be in.

After they had done this and the correct order of the story had been revealed, they discussed among their group questions such as how well they thought they did, who they felt was a natural leader and any lessons they may have learned from this.

Our focus for science this week has been on learning all about the sexual and asexual reproduction of plants. Investigating just how asexual reproduction can occur, the children conducted an experiment in which parts of a plant were cut off and placed in to a pot of water. These plant parts are then going to be observed over time to see if they grow their own roots and form an entirely new plant.

These past two weeks, Willow class have been looking after some caterpillars. We got to the opportunity to see them forming cocoons, all the way up to where they began emerging as wonderful butterflies. The children (and staff!) have been so amazed by the transformation these caterpillars went through and it was wonderful to watch them fly away as we released them.
