We are already well into the new school year and the summer holidays are becoming a distant memory. We have all enjoyed unseasonably warm weather for September but it is fair to say that the weather is now very much autumnal. As many of you know, we love the outdoors at Irthington and the children really benefit from the freedom and fresh air that playing on the field brings. In addition to playtime and PE, in Class One we enjoy Forest Schools every Friday morning, and to date we have loved jumping in muddy puddles seeing who can make the biggest splash, we have made mud collages; mixing our mud paint in buckets and creating natural paint brushes with sticks, twigs, leaves and flowers. We have made mobiles out natural materials and even inside the classroom, on our Investigation Station; we have a little taste on autumn to explore!
