Kindergarten Blog: Springtime and growth

Posted: 4th April 2014 | Category: Kindergarten

Suddenly the weather is smiling on us! The rain seems a very distant memory already.

Our topic at the moment is ‘Springtime and Growth’. We have been exploring the grounds and woodland, and looking for signs of Spring. Apparently, one very definite sign of Spring is that it is forbidden to walk or run down any grassy slope - rolling is the ‘in thing’! Even for teachers who should be old enough to know better! Thank goodness for mud-proof trousers!

We have been planning our garden, and planting has begun. Cress is always a reliable starting point, followed by beans in jars and sweet pea seeds. We adults were reminded of the simple wonder of a sprouting bean, as we watched through the children’s eyes.

Everything is done with such concentration and enthusiasm - digging the compost, filling the little pots, planting the precious seeds and then drowning, sorry, watering them! We will keep you updated on their progress in the weeks to come.

The children have so enjoyed embellishing their lovely hats for the Easter Bonnet Parade (thank you FOSHA) and we are all looking forward to a chocolate-filled holiday!

Sue and I have had a wonderful term with the children; laughing and learning all the way. The children have run, danced, painted, built, explored and made connections, and we are thrilled with their progress. We are looking forward to making new friends next term as our Kindergarten grows.

Thank you for your support and friendship, and have a lovely Easter.

Loraine Pincott and Sue Reis
