Mud pies, music and millipedes

This year we have been developing the outdoor area for the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage to enjoy. We have lots of exciting new areas for the children to explore and so far we have all had great fun playing and investigating!
Our country house garden has been very popular, especially during our topic on growing. We have spent lots of time digging with spades and shovels and filling the plant pots. We are very much looking forward to the hotter weather when we can put real water in our watering cans!
Our insect hotel is a new home for creepy crawlies and has brought out the very caring side of our children. We have learnt not to squash the insects we find and to take them for a holiday in our insect hotel. We have searched high and low with our magnifying glasses and found all sorts of multi-legged creatures.

After all the time we have spent in our music hall we should be famous musicians! The pan wall has been a favourite as we can bang and crash and make as much noise as we possibly can.
Our allotment is where we can grow our own food. We have started growing lots of different fruits, vegetables and herbs. We cannot wait to taste our delicious food when it has grown.
We have had lots of fun hiding and playing games inside our den. We have been reading books to each other, playing hide and seek and creating our own role play stories.
Our laboratory has been a very exciting addition to our outdoor area. We have already loved being scientists with water and there are even more potions to be made and experiments taking place in the next few weeks with fizzy pop, glitter and food colouring.

We are very good at building in our Foundation Stage unit and we are developing our skills on our very own construction site. We have built towers, castles and houses and we look so professional while wearing our hard hats!
Our mud kitchen and café is one of our favourite new areas. We have been chefs, waiters and waitresses and very hungry customers. We have loved writing down orders and then preparing lots of tasty mud pies, paellas and yummy, scrummy delights for the customers. We will be introducing water into this area in the next few weeks and we are looking forward to being served some really sloppy, muddy treats.
We have very much enjoyed developing and enhancing our outdoor area this year and we hope that the children can explore, giggle, experiment and have fun for many years to come!

Last week, 10 staff from Morna gave up their weekend to attend the annual National Association of British Schools in Spain conference in Valencia. As well as including important updates about child protection, safeguarding and educationally related laws, there were also a number of training workshops designed to help teachers improve teaching and learning in schools. These workshops not only benefitted the staff that attended, but the information was also shared with staff throughout our school.
We are always looking to improve at Morna, and we make a major investment in the training and development of our staff each year.
The NABSS conference is one small part of this, but the fact that so many staff were keen to attend, shows their commitment to this process.
Our staff are always looking to do what is best for the students of our school, and this is another example of that.
Have a great weekend.

Last week, Y10 students visited the “Parque Natural de las Salinas” with their Spanish teachers. They learned about the sea turtle species which have come to the island to lay their eggs in the last years. Students did a simulation of the nest translocation protocol that is carried out by environment agents and scientists when a turtle trace is found.
