Over the past 2 days, Transition have held an open morning down at the paddock. Each week Bevendean classes visit the paddock to explore nature and partake in various outdoor activities. To begin the mornings Transition performed a song and dance for everyone out on the field with their hat accessories they had made in class. Afterwards, the children and parents enjoyed free time together around the paddock, enjoying a juice and biscuits whilst the parents enjoyed some scones, tea and coffee. The various activities included wand making, using sticks, flowers and feathers they created magic nature wands, using clay they made faces on the tree trunks and with some fun music playing they used ribbons to dance.
At the planting patch, each child got the chance to plant a little flower into the soil using a spade and giving it a little water from the watering cans. This morning enabled the children to show their parents the wonderful paddock where the children have spent time exploring nature and the inhabitants of the pond, the grass and the trees. A lovely morning at the paddock with beautiful sunshine!
