 Rain drops keep falling on my head (5M allotment)

As the rain poured this Friday afternoon, 5M made their way through the soggy filed to the allotment. 

The children worked with Lisa and Becky to become 'solo squirrels' who were burying their conkers ready for the winter weather to hit. We talked about the ways that animals look after themselves during the colder weather and how they make sure they have enough to eat. Lisa also told us that lots of extra things begin to grow in the allotment after the winter time, as animals forget where they hide their stash - this is one way seeds are dispersed. 

Many of us took ourselves out of our comfort zones and climbed trees for the first time!

5P Allotment Fun

Today, the children of 5P went on a rainy and windy adventure to the allotment for the first time this year.  They used conkers and sultana's to learn about squirrels hoarding their food for the leaner months and how this in turn helps seed disbursement.

They then had fun climbing an old apple tree, catching and studying bugs and swinging in a new hammock.

Lots of fun was had by all, even though it was a little big soggy.
