Welcome to our Forest School page!
This is the place to look to find out about what we have been up to in our Forest School sessions. We will be posting photographs of what we have been doing and things we have been making.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH PTA!
Our wonderful PTA have funded some additional waterproofs for Forest School sessions and 2 lovely child sized benches for the den in the maze. Thank you very much they are much appreciated.
Year 1 Forest School
Forest School sessions for Year 1 start on Thursday 9th January and will run until Easter. Your child will need a pair of wellies in school. No other kit is needed until it gets cold when hats, gloves and another layer of warm clothing might be advisable.(PLEASE MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS NAMED).
To link with our whole school theme of Turrets and Tales we will be making catapults, bows and arrows, mini castles and cooking on a campfire over the next few weeks. Any useful sticks (particularly Y shaped ones) would be very welcome and can be brought into school on Thursdays.
Do log in to Tapestry for weekly updates and photo's. We are learning so much!
Rhino horns at Forest School!
Year 2 have made a fantastic start to Forest School. We went out to look for sycamore seeds, saw how they can 'helicopter' and learnt why they do this. We then used them to make horns. It was a bit fiddly and taught us a lot about persistence but it was great fun and there was a lot of giggling!
We go outside whatever the weather! In the winter months, if it is very cold, we may ask you to provide warm clothes for under our waterproofs.
PLEASE NAME EVERYTHING!
