Butterflies have been amazing this week. They have grown up so much we can see that they are ready for new challenges next year. We have 3 weeks to enjoy our time together before the holiday. They have been so fabulous, they have all been Superstars this week. It was lovely to see how pleased they all were to hear the Superstar announcement in assembly. There were cheers and hugs all round. 😀🥳🏅🎉
Today, everyone had their photographs taken. The weather was not good so they were taken in the gym. The photographer did a superb job of getting beautiful smiles from all the children. I expect by now you will have seen the proofs and information sent to you. below, you can see them in action.
I hope you are delighted with your photos.
In cooking this week, the children made edible soil, adapting the basic recipe to create their own. They added jelly worms to finish it off. Apparently it was delicious!
Great news! We have a butterfly.
Here we are, beginning a great sort out. We had lots of fun playing games and completing puzzles to check that all the pieces were there.
On Tuesday, some Butterflies were lucky enough to go to The Tower of London with Me, Mia and Ruth as part of the Superbloom project. We have been joining children from Rushall in some growing and planting tasks throughout this term. It was a long and tiring day but we had such a good time. The flowers were really impressive but the highlight of the day was going through tunnels on the coach. Comments such as, ’awesome’ and ’this is the best day of my life ’ were heard. They also loved seeing the Docklands Light Railway trains and learning that they do not have a driver.
I have added some photos below but do also check out the blog post from Tuesday.
All of the children were incredibly well behaved and made the day an absolute pleasure. They did us all proud.
More interesting news! Here is an example of the remarkable perseverance and strength of nature. This pack of sunflower seeds obviously got the water and light it needed. This is what we found. Excellent proof that soil is not always necessary.
