Welcome to the Summer Term! I hope you all had a fantastic two-week break. We’ve been blessed with the amount of sunshine we’ve had these past few weeks; I’ve spotted a number of queen bumblebees busily collecting the first pollen and nectar of the season as well as the first Orange Tip and Speckled Wood butterflies and there’s just a hint of colour in the hedgerows now – spring is truly here and we can all look forward to brighter and warmer days.
We’ve been connecting with nature a fair amount this week in Birch Class. Whether reading by the big Oak tree and listening to the blackbirds sing and the lambs bouncing around in the field next door or when running our daily mile! Can you believe we’ve now completed mile 23! Only 3.2 miles left and we will have run a marathon together. We've also been dving deep into the wonders of Archipelago - a fantastically illustrated book, full of imaginary islands and in maths we've been getting to know protractors quite well as we measure and draw angles (not angels Charlie).
We’ve also been having some fantastic (and pretty deep) conversations in class. Ember got us all thinking when she proposed that life could be a simulation, Maisie started a passionate debate on the importance of maths and Ottie wondered why my knees look like owls. I’ve missed these brilliant insights!
Have a great weekend, Mr B
