Welcome back to Autumn term 2!

Welcome back to Autumn 2! We had the most wonderful holiday camps running at Half term in Weymouth and Devon, all busy and exciting clubs! The children made fires, explored ‘team’ den building activities and practiced using various tools, as well as creating many artworks using clay, paint and natural materials like leaves and mud!

This term the Pre-School at Churchfield School in Somerset will be making new fences and boundaries for our fire circle, using mallets and freshly cut sticks. We will be talking about animal habitats, and why and where animals make their homes. We will also be cooking over our fire! It is a very exciting term!

In other news….We have applied for a grant from The Somerset Gardens trust for £350 to add a seated sensory garden to our Early Years Forest school. This garden would be a fantastic adition to the mindfulness area and somewhere for the children to experience new and interesting planting areas. I am happy to inform you that we have been granted this money and are now planning the renovation of this part of the forest school. Once we have a working plan, we will be looking for parents or friends of Churchfield to volunteer to help get the works started as soon as possible so that all can enjoy the space by Spring/ summer term.  I will keep you updated as soon as the working plan has been set.

I would like to plant the following herbs and plants to add to our existing plants: Lemongrass, Thyme, Scented Geraniums, Lambs ear, Wrinkly kale, Wheat, Tomatoes, Green beans, Spring onions, Sunflowers, Lettuce, and Bunny tails grass and Pussy willow.

I look forward to keeping you updated soon!
