Year 5 have had a great morning in our forest.

They have been making authentic Anglo-Saxon stew and cooking bread over the fire as well as building their own shelters.

We have loved our forest schools this half term and are very sad it has come to an end already! Year 3 are up next watch this space for their activities!

What a great first session for our Y2 Forest Explorers!

Circle time in the forest! What did we have to do when we were standing in a circle? Hint: glue!

We all sat around the camp fire and listened carefully to the rules. Can anyone remember them?

Aleeza found a potential risk in our forest. Well done, Aleeza 🙂

Catch the train!! We played a hide a seek game using our ears. Can anyone remember what we called out?

Lucas gave Mrs Booth excellent directions to help her get to a tree safely. Well done, Lucas!

Den building was so fun! We had lots of creative ideas and problem solving skills. A big well done to Lewis who used a stick to help his team lift the tarpaulin onto their den roof. Super ideas.

Boys will be boys! Excellent extension of an existing den boys! Some fantastic team work skills shown!

Welcome to the Worm Hotel

Tonight at Eco-club we made our very own 5 star worm hotels, we thought about where we usually find worms and then tried to recreate that in a jar.

The Warriors used layers of sand and soil to fill their jars and then we went worm collecting. It took us a while but eventually we found a lovely damp place underneath a planting table where there were lots of worms.

We popped the worms into our hotels and then topped them off with food scraps and old tea leaves. Yum yum, a tasty treat for our little friends.

imageAmelia was very proud of her lovely wormary.

Over the next few weeks we will keep an eye on our worm hotels to see what happens. What do you think we will find?
