Time to explore

This months forest school gave us  time to explore being creative in nature.

The children were given an opportunity to get mucky, create art using what they can find in the woods, build dens, paint the storage shed with mud, create music using nature and generally have fun.

We also explored using blindfolds in pairs and small groups, guiding each other around the Forest School area. Last thing we used some locally found clay to create our own piece of art on a tree.

 

Lots of muddy children, it was lovely!

Verbs & Creating Sentences

Kingfisher class had a great afternoon acting out different verbs and creating sentences putting them into the past tense.

The year 2 children went on to create Past Progressive sentences.

British Science Week

As part of British Science Week we had a strong focus on our Science topic of Wild and Wonderful Creatures.

This culminated with the children being stranded on a Desert Island and writing a message in a bottle letter to Mrs armitage.

Ospreys Forest School

John Muir Award - Conservation

As part of Ospreys conservation element of their John Muir award, we went around the village litter picking … I think you well agree we did well.

We tried to build shelters, but the weather got the better of us, however it was fun.

Jackdaws Forest School

We had to use our lateral thinking skills to solve problems, picked up an incredible amount of litter and made brilliant clay birds - Take a look at our "Forest School Snaps"in class for even more fantastic photos!

Jackdaws Residential

We had a fantastic time on our residential! We did some excellent activities – some science work with food chains, we followed a “night line” where we had to rely on each other and some good communication skills because we were blindfolded!

We did some campfire cookery, prepping soup, food and bread, and we made shelters in the forest. Excitingly, we went for a Night Walk in Hooke Woods, using our torches and lots of stargazing. We had to be quite brave! On the final day, we did the Low Ropes course – lots of teamwork happening here, and we really gelled across the two schools – and Orienteering. We came back EXHAUSTED.

Here are a selection of pictures from our Residential

Science Week Launch Assembly

In Jackdaws, we got a fantastic opportunity to look at bones and bugs, and thought about what Scientists looked like.

 

Across the whole school, we all had a similar picture in our heads of a scientist – a crazy-haired, spectacle-wearing, evil-genius!

Now we know that we are all scientists!
