Today we came to school and we had lots of snow in our outdoor classroom. We went out to explore the snow and build an EYFS snowman!


Isn't he fantastic - he even has a school tie to match the children!



Snow Fun!


Today we came to school and saw that we had a covering of snow in our outdoor area. We put our warm clothes on and then went outside to make a snowman and see the patterns our footprints made. We even spotted some tracks an animal had left in the snow when it had walked through our outdoor area!


We had lots of fun in the snow and you can see our lovely snowman we made below.

Today we had a special visit from the Animal Lady. 

We learnt about lots of different animals we had never seen before such as owls, snakes and a tortoise.


The lady explained where each animal lived, what they ate and things they liked to do. We then had the chance to get a closer look as the carried them around for us to look at.


We had lots of fun today and thoroughly enjoyed the special visit.
