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.


Supertato we need your help.

The children found a crime scene in the classroom. They were super investigators as they tried to solve the crime.

Our Maths and Scientific Quest

In maths we made shields using our knowledge of symmetry.

We learnt how to sort different materials out which included: glitter, rice, pasta, gems, buttons, hundreds and thousands, marbles, paperclips and bells. We used sieving, magnets, and scoops.

We investigated invisible ink and then used the best to make maps.

We investigated how absorbent different materials were to soak up water from an oasis.

We learnt how to melt ice the quickest without force to retrieve our gems.

Everyone really enjoyed this quest!

Visit from the Animal Man

We had a fantastic time this morning looking at all of the different animals that the Animal Man brought in. He showed us a chinchilla, cockroaches, spiders, snakes, a scorpion, a bearded dragon and a chameleon.
