Spotlight on: Pre-prep
Our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 teachers on Pre-prep activities this term
Reception – Miss Natalie Shale
Reception pupils have been busy in the Sensory Garden this week as the group prepares raised beds ready to plant new seeds. At the end of the Spring Term the group discussed what kind of flowers and vegetables they would like to grow, and the girls will start by planting lettuce leaves, spring onions, rocket, marigolds and wild flowers. They are always very keen to work together to look after the seedlings and it is wonderful to see how excited they get when the first tiny shoots appear in the soil and, hopefully, grow in to plants and vegetables.
Year 1 – Mrs Carol Kew
This term the girls’ learning emphasis is on clothes, and we have read Hans Christian Andersen's story, The Emperor's New Clothes. The group discussed the meaning of the story and the girls decided that it was better to be kind and thoughtful rather than preoccupied with how you look.
Year 2 – Mrs Kerry Owens
