September Sunflowers



Our Kindergarten and outdoor Parent & Child Group children enjoy a cheerful cluster of sunflowers towering over their outdoor space, casting interesting shadows and dropping their precious seeds.



Those on their way to our indoor Parent & Child Group may notice the bright glow of more sunflowers as they pass the nature table in our lobby.



The theme continues to include our School children. Each child was handed the gift of a sunflower from teacher Nicola to welcome them to their new term at Beechtree Steiner Initiative. What a lovely way to hold on to the last sunshine of the year as we prepare to welcome in the Autumn.

In this first week, our School children have worked together to create some classroom rules based on what they have experienced as they have played and worked in the classroom, on walks, during games and at lunchtime.

Each child was given the opportunity to suggest a rule and the other children listened whilst they talked and then everybody agreed upon the rules and signed their names.



How to be a happy class
1. Be fair and kind and look out for other people
2. Compromise
3. Take turns
4. Share
5. No snatching – use your words, not your hands or feet
6. Listen to each other
7. Kind hands, feet and mouth
8. Ask before you leave the classroom
9. Look after our world
10. Find a way to be sorry


We hope you enjoy what our blended Class One and Two came up with as their own version of our behaviour policy.



Being different is good, but being together with other different people is beautiful and precious and the only way to peace and happiness.
