Group 2 were developing their reflection skills in Maple Cross Explorers today by describing how they were feeling during and after our activity. We were creating our own versions of Andy Goldsworthy Art and some people enjoyed it because they wanted to be an artist or they liked working with others. Some people were sad because they couldn’t recreate the picture as they wanted.
This afternoon we took delivery of 10 benches which have been made by HS2. We are working with HS2 on a number of projects around school and look forward to more developments over the next eighteen months. We will keep updating you once we have firmer plans and timescales. We are looking to develop the woodland/nature area, create a wild flower area and some other projects which are top secret at this stage!
These benches are the start of a quiet area we are creating for the children to use at lunchtime as well as before and after school. This will provide a quiet space to sit to reflect.
