In the time before break and since returning to school, the Sky Class has spent as many days as possible soaking up the sunshine and playing outside in the beautiful spring weather, shedding layers of jackets, hats, and gloves as it becomes warmer.
The change in seasons has also prompted some observations from the children as they delight in the nature that is blossoming around them and the creatures that are reappearing after the cold winter months.
“The trees have flowers on them!”
“Look, I see a tiny spider!”
“There is a bird taking a bath in that puddle!”
“They are planting things!”
“I wonder what it’s going to look like after everything has grown.”
Several of the fields that the children usually play in are being seeded at the moment, causing the class to play in some previously unexplored areas of Church Square Park. The children and teachers have found so much joy in this, seeing what new games and ideas are discovered thanks to the change in scenery.
