Our forest school feast!

We were so happy at our forest school club yesterday! Look at all the fruit that we picked! We have even made a strawberry and raspberry slushie, that we have put in the freezer for next week! Can't wait to try it!

My favourite part.....

The best part of forest school this time was making owl buddies, making stick men and pond dipping. 4CJ
‘Forest school is one of my favourites’ Oliver
‘ Making owl buddies was good because we could work independently and collaboratively’ Sinead
‘ Pond dipping was good because we could see newts swimming in the trays, the species trays’ Josh
‘Making stick men was great because you could use your imagination and play whatever you wanted with them.’ Sinead.

Stick People take over our forest!

In Forest  School  we had lots of fun making stickmen using googly eyes and resources around Forest School. We then worked in groups to make up stories and turn it into a play. My play was about a wedding that got ruined by Mr Evil but super stick came and saved the day! We chose to use the orchard because the stick couple wanted to get married amongst nature. We all shared the responsibility of making silly and fun sound effects. Emily 4CJ.

My play was about a soldier  who saved  the whole, entire world. He was in a jet and sacrificed himself for everyone. For the jet,  I used a plank of wood that I found in Forest School. I thought about the animation of how he flew the jet and how it could be made into a film. George 4CJ.

We have bluebells at forest school!

Now we need to work out if they are native UK bluebells or foreign imposters! We will get our magnifying glasses out next lesson!

6NA John Muir Projects

TWO of the projects have been completed, a week early, in forest school!
Firstly, how fantastic is Oliver's rotating, recycled wheel bird feeder!
Also take a look at Keira, Olivia and Melissa's wonderful bird house that is sitting happily on a silver birch tree, waiting for its first visitors!
Can't wait to see what projects are finished next! 

4CF Bridges by Jodie

Dear F.S Diary,
Last week in forest school we had to build bridges. We had to create mini bridges and large bridges. The mini bridges had to hold a toy dinosaur. The large bridge had to hold a teacher. Most of the bridges held the teachers some didn’t. There was also gardening we had to paint the borders.

Building Bridges! 5JJ

Take a look at our BIG and small bridges! Some we made human sized, making them strong enough to hold our team. Some we made tiny for toys, to see which design was most successful. What do you think?
