What a wonderful summer it has been too!
We've spent most days outdoors, the children coming in occasionally to do concentrated work and then out again to absorb the sights and smells of summer.
We've been able to see a toad, a green woodpecker, the difference between a millipede and a centipede, ladybirds, green shield bugs and we've even managed to have a chat between our soft toy blackbird with a recorded blackbird song and a real blackbird in the garden. That was fun!
We could do lots of our creative ideas outside too-making lavender soap, making pizza for dinner, fennel and lemon balm tea, gingerbread men, making mobiles - the children joining in when they want to and our days have flowed beautifully.
