Forest School with Branching Out

Today our class has been lucky enough to work with Toni and Hels in a Forest School session.

We used a pruning saw a to cut a branch of a hazel tree to create a rope ladder. Others created dens whilst waiting. Lots of skills were developed, including resilience, team-work, communication and empathy.

Welsh Forests

Today we became explorer, exploring the forests of Wales. As we forgot to pack our cameras we painted pictures of the forests!

Elliott the lamb visited us

On Tuesday we were lucky enough to be visited by Hudson’s mum and their lamb. We thought of lots of interesting questions including why Elliott was wearing a nappy.


The story of Matthew

We looked at the Bible and we discussed the old testament and the new testament. The first book in the New Testament is the Gospel of Matthew. It is named after one of Jesus’ 12 disciples. We discussed the story of Matthew that is found in Matthew 9.9-13.

We found out that when Jesus was on Earth, he often spent time with people who were disliked or unpopular with others. Jesus believed that everyone should be allowed a chance for their lives to be changed so that they could have a fresh start.  We discussed when we have been given a second chance and we we have given others second chances


Walk to Ffryd Woods

We really enjoyed our walk to Ffryd Woods. We looked at all of the different trees and plants and talked about the animals that might live in the woods.
