If you’d like to see more photos of what we get up to in Explorers go to the EYFS page in the Curriculum section….there’s lots to see! 

March, a month, full of animals, exploring and discovery. A full on busy month! Celebrated our mums by inviting them into a classroom to share afternoon tea. We’ve explored the Easter story and Easter traditions.

February is an exciting month in Explorers, a month of celebrations and discovery. 

Shrove Tuesday pancakes!

Family reading

Once a month we invite one of our family to come and share stories and books with us. We share our grown ups with our friends!! We love it, it’s a special time for all of us.

John, from the RSPCA, came to visit us with some of his rescued pets. He brought a tarantula, a bearded dragon, a bowl snake, a scorpion and a tortoise. We loved it!

The start of our Forest School journey

We are so lucky to have a day in our Forest School every week. 
This half term we’ve been exploring nature’s treasures that are all around us.
We’ve developed our den making skills by working and communicating our ideas as part of a team then applying what we’ve learned to building tiny dens for The Little People (who live in our Forest School space!) individually.

We’ve also experienced the joy of an outdoor fire - you can’t beat toasting marshmallows outside! 
We are learning all about fire safety and showing fire respect - we’ve learned so much!

Grand Opening of our NEW outside space

Still image for this video
We had our own DIY SOS experience during the Easter holidays. The Rothen family so kindly offered to give our outside area a revamp and this is a video of our grand opening.
We absolutely love it and feel so very fortunate. We explore and investigate outside every day come rain or shine!
One of the children summed it up brilliantly ' There's so many things to choose I don't know what to do first!'
