Pocklington Infants Oct 2014 – FS

On Wednesday 8th October the Foundation Stage children came to Uncleby. Squirrels class came first. They completed 3 activities in the Education centre until the coach returned with the Owl class.

They did some super colouring of the things that they hoped they would see during the day. They made a sheep using lolly sticks and goggly eyes. Finally they planted a bean in a clear cup so that they could see the roots and shoots as it grows.

The second group went for a walk in the fields at Manor Farm looking at the berries in the hedgerow, the ‘bug hotel’, they liked walking through the field where the sheep were grazing. They found a frog in the grass too!
