“Lessons learnt outdoors, whether maths, science or language, often stay with us for life. Being outdoors helps children focusboosts creativity and imagination, and can simply be more fun

Children who have the freedom to play today — making friends, getting lost in the moment, having fun — are better prepared for whatever tomorrow throws at them. Playing helps children build friendshipstest their own boundaries and solve their own problems. It’s central to a child’s development and their enjoyment of childhood.”

Today, weather permitted, we endeavour to spend as much time outdoors with our learning as possible!

PRAYER

What do we think about creation?

  • Ashvarn – I think all the Gods in the world joined together and created their own stuff
  • Aurora – I think God made people and then those people made the buildings but God made the environment
  • Ann – I think that there was a different God that made the world and people didn’t care about it but then God made this world
  • Jake – I think no Gods made the world but maybe asteroids hit the earth and then things turned into grass and water and then after years creatures in the water made animals and people
  • Ava – I think that not really anybody made it just the environment made itself
  • Iris – I believe that the Big Bang happened. Like before space happened everything was asteroids then it made a lot of planets. Space was really small but it kept expanding
  • Akemjot – First I think earth was a different planet and then soon when God realised we need a place to live with oxygen we should change it to Earth. Then God put things on there
  • Libby – I think that there was a dark planet which is known today as Earth and people didn’t start out like us but actual like chimpanzees a long long time ago
