Henley Green’s our place to shine!


The Hub

Autumn 1 - The Enormous Turnip.We have been sharing and retelling the story of 'The Enormous Turnip'. We have role-played the story and listened to alternative versions as well. The children chose to try some food tasting of turnips and other root vegetables and recorded their findings.

Autumn 1 2018 - We have been harvesting and planting bulbs outside as a team. We also enjoy maintaining our garden areas and allotments by watering and weeding together.

We had some more visitors to the Hub, Mrs Garden brought in some tadpoles for the Hub children to look out and feed them cucumber slices. We then explored our art skills with the oil pastels learning how to lend and shade with them.

We had a creepy crawly visitor in the Hub, we got to look at the caterpillar through a magnifying glass. After this we created our own painting using shades and hues of the same colour.

We made our own bird feeders by squeezing and scooping out the centre of an orange and then filling it with bird seed. We then got to go to the Wildlife garden and hand our feeders on the trees.

We had our own achievement assembly where we invited all the Hub parents to celebrate all our successes in the Hub.

In the Hub we have made some rock cakes as part of our cooking sessions with Mrs Rouse.
