Super Spitfire

Many thanks to Rod for bringing in his Spitfire to show us. Children really enjoyed finding out more about flight. 

Exploring flight

Following on from our visit from a spitfire this afternoon Buccaneer class spent the afternoon learning about flight. First we explored how thrust is created, we tested different balloons to see which travelled farthest.  Them we learned about lift, the Year 1s enjoyed experimenting with helium balloons to see what they could lift.  

Harvest Festival church visit 

In preparation for our harvest service we visited the church and had a look around. 

Our first few weeks of school

Here are some pictures of just a few of the things our new Foundation children have been exploring in their new class. 

Inspiring Ideas

The children in Buccaneers and Hurricanes have had a busy few weeks at Forest School. They have been exploring the changes that have been taking place and enjoying the chance to work together and be creative.  Some of the children found feathers and wanted to do something with them so we sat around the campfire and talked about different ideas.  The following week, some children made bird tree cookies with feathery wings, while others made blackberry ink and discovered that they could write with a feather!  A few of the boys had some fiery success after they were shown how to make pinecone firelighters, and they managed to get their fire going properly!
