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?

Morse Code Secret Messages- Can you crack the code?





Can you work out what these dashes and dots say to find where the creature was hidden in forest school?

4CF created Morse code clues using sticks and stones, they did a fantastic job and all the creatures were found! Well done!

Oliver the Pond Whisperer!


Oliver has been living up to his nickname this week by catching 3 newts from the pond.
He said "One had a thin tail, the other had a thick tail and one had orange stripes." Oliver is going to research to find out what these characteristics mean. Can you find out before him?

Forest creatures 4cf

Today in  4cf we went  to  the garden to  pick  leaves, sticks and stones, then we went back into the class room to make our forest creatures. We designed them to look real using materials from the garden. When we have finished them, they might look like a proper animal.  We will put up some photos when they are complete. What did you make? Thanks. By Finley 4cf

Pancake Day



This half term, we were very lucky to start back at forest school on pancake day!
The rain meant we couldn't have a campfire so 3LE made mud pancakes instead!
We even had our own Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood to judge the best.
Photos to follow!

The sunshine shone on Wednesday so 6NA had the real thing! Sous chef Seb poured the mix and provided the whole class with pancakes. "This is delicious" was one of the many comments. Well done Seb!

What word would you use to describe your pancake?

Our new frog house; the Frogilo!


A huge well done to Jade and Ally (with some extra helpers) for installing our first frog house to help the frogs stay warm during this cold weather we are experiencing! It looks fantastic and we are looking forward to seeing the first residents!
