Mad about Minibeasts – Summer 2022

We are beginning our new theme – “Mad about Minibeasts’.

It started with Carlos Cat asking us to find out where is the best place to find minibeasts in our school?

So, Rainbows set out on a minibeast hunt! We’ve learnt to identify the minibeasts we’ve found and found out that under logs is a very good place to find lots of different minibeasts.

Rainbows then designed minibeast houses, making choices about which materials they’d need to attract the different minibeasts. We then spent our Forest School session this week building the houses. Here are some pictures to show you the fun we’ve had…

We’ve enjoyed these stories related to the weather:

Someone Bigger by Jonathan Emmett

All Afloat on Noah’s Boat by Tony Mitton

Foggy Foggy Forest by Nick Sharratt

As well as learning all about the weather from lots of information books.

Spring 2022 – Wonderful World

Rainbows started their new theme ‘Wonderful World’ by exploring the wind with kites, windmills and streamers.

This spring we will be learning about the weather and using stories based around different weather to support our learning and development.


Our woods

Today we explored our wood – Frithwood. 

Rainbows looked for changes as we move into Autumn and collected leaves to explore in our classroom.

Autumn 2021 – ‘Into the woods’

Rainbows have started their theme of ‘Into the woods’ by exploring trees and the treasures that trees drop to the ground.

Here are some pictures of the Rainbows climbing trees, hunting for tree treasures, threading the treasures together to make hanging mobiles for our classroom. They are also enjoying reading in our woodland den and have painted ‘magic’ trees like the trees in the book ‘Tap the magic tree’.

Rainbows Week of Wellbeing 2021

What a fantastic week we’ve had!

In Rainbows we talked about three key words that help us to think about our wellbeing, they are being happy, healthy and calm. Across the week we took part in many different experiences that supported these ideas.

Happy Rainbows had a visit to the circus, played on an inflatable obstacle course and enjoyed time with friends.  They took part in yoga, mindfulness colouring and pebble decorating to think about being calm and our sports day races, balance bike riding, Atlas sports games and healthy cooking ensured we had a healthy week.

Please look through our pictures to see the fun we’ve had learning about our wellbeing.

Summer Term 2021 – Ahoy There!

Ahoy there me hearties!

Rainbows are beginning their theme ‘Ahoy there!’.

This term our learning is through the theme of pirates and the sea. First week back and we’ve all enjoyed an exciting day of Pirate training. This included coming to school dressed as a pirate, learning to talk like a pirate, dance like a pirate, hunt for treasure, look after our boat and sing like a pirate!

When we went down to the woods today…

This afternoon we enjoyed the beautiful Spring sunshine and went on a Teddy Bears picnic.

Rainbows have been busy since returning to school after the lockdown. They have planned and taken part in their own Teddy Bears picnic. They wrote ideas for things we’d need, then wrote invitations to their bears and finally made their sandwiches for the picnic. The sun shone and we took our bears for a picnic and games in the wild classroom.


Bear Necessities – Spring Term 2021

Rainbows have started the new year with the theme ‘Bear Necessities’. They have been on a bear hunt around the village spotting the bears our lovely community have put in their windows for us. 

They’ve retold the story of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen and created some super bear pictures. It will take more than a national lockdown to stop Rainbows having fun with their learning!
