Mini Beasts in our Forest School

Over the last few weeks, with classes 1 and 2 we have been looking at what Mini Beasts are in our Forest School area. 
We have been searching under rocks, logs and in the trees. We have used books to help us identify what we found and some of us made wonderful creatures of our own! 

Water colours and frame making with yrs 5 and 6. Learning the square lashing knot to help us along the way.

Class 3 made a fantastic car and some superb dens today. They used ropes which they needed to know which knots to use and some hammering of nails was needed as well. The chickens got a deep clean with wood chip added to their floor. What a productive session!

Years reception, 1 and 2 were looking at the book ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ today. We had several Ladybirds come and join in with the session!

Class 4 - The completed ‘small worlds’

Wonderful wellbeing day - December 15th. 

We started the day with a fantastic music concert - so many pupils took part in the recital - please see the videos in the events section. It was such a special start to our day and a huge well done to musicians - you were amazing. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. 

We all created a peace chain as part of the whole school but also part of the Diocese of Gloucester to spread peace around our area, Diocese, Country and even to the World.

We created buzzers in Class 3 as part of D+T and today we got to design our own cover - we talked about feeling safe and secure.

In Class 4 we focused on our art and took time to create beautiful patterns on our peace chains.

In Class 2 - we created beautiful peace chains and talked all about our hopes for peace in our world. then we did a good clear out of lots of areas in our class - tidy class, tidy mind - everyone is happier.

In Class 1 we did a circle time and shared our thoughts and worries.

Then it was Christmas lunch - what a feast! So much joy and laughter around the tables just chatting and celebrating with friends.

An afternoon treat - we get to watch the dress rehearsal of the Nativity play.

What a brilliant day.

Wellbeing Day 4th November 2023

The theme for Wellbeing Day was to promote happiness by understanding our own feelings. We emphasized the importance of realising 'it's ok, not to be ok'. We all have days that life feels harder. We joined in yoga and learnt about the power of 5. We used our creative skills to paint beautiful poppy displays connecting our own wellbeing with the wellbeing of war veterans. 

Fun in Forest School for the First Term Back
