Avon Valley Farm Park

Oak Class had a brilliant day at the farm! We spent the day doing lots of fun activities with the Park Rangers. Throughout the day we looked around the park, groomed ponies, fed goats, stroked lots of furry creatures and watched pig racing.


Spring Stay and Play

This week the children and their parents did some Spring arts and crafts. We painted using carrots, created observational drawings of tulips and decorated eggs. We also challenged ourselves by making Spring cards.


Phase Design: complete!

Our Space Experts joined our cadets for an important mission today. We made some rockets using junk materials. Our rockets are going to be sent to NASA so they can use them to send our alien friend Pop Pop home.

We combined Forest Friday with stay and play this week. We used objects we found, attached them to string and told a story linking to the items.

This week we made rock cakes we weighed, mixed and took turns. They were delightful!

Christmas has arrived in Oak Class

Stay and P.E activities

The children had an extra exciting P.E session today. Some of their parents visited for the Stay and P.E activities. We have been focusing on catching so played a range of games to help us.

Forest Friday

A shape-tastic forest Friday! The children went on a shape hunt through the woods. Then the children found some sticks to make their own 2D shapes. They even had a go at recognising the sides.

Aquarium Trip

Oak class had a fantastic first trip to Bristol Aquarium. They enjoyed looking at all of the sea creatures. We are very proud of them as they showed their Bowsland best throughout the whole day.

Forest Friday

During Forest Friday we made amazing firework pictured from all of the leaves and twigs that we could find. We added our own sound effects.

Let’s go fly a kite…

What a windy day! The children made some wonderful kites that we flew around the playground. They ran around at different speeds to see how well the kites could fly.

Rain doesn’t stop play

Rain doesn’t stop play here at Bowsland Green! We have had a wonderful Forest Friday session today playing in the puddles and working with our friends to move water around the playground.


Stay and Learn workshop

Thank you to all of the parents who attended out Stay and Learn workshop today. We all enjoyed taking part in Dough Disco followed by lots of different activities that helped us to develop our fine motor skills.


What a fantastic first week we have had! The newest members of Team Bowsland have been busy exploring  our classroom environment and making lots of new friends. We are very proud of them and are so excited about the year ahead!
