Busy, busy, busy!
The Buccaneers are a busy little bunch; they are keen to try everything and get involved with using tools to make and create.
The freshly pressed apple juice from Mrs Shipway went down a treat this week, washing down the hotdogs perfectly!
Buccaneers take flight at Forest School!
What a lovely afternoon we had with all of the Buccaneers at Forest School today.
It was so lovely to hear some of the Year 1's keen to explore and show others around the site - and they couldn't wait to share our important Forest School rules!
Apple peeling, sawing, fire lighting and going on the rope swing were very popular so it was nice to come back together for a sit down and to try some of our homemade campfire apple crumble.
On Monday afternoon, we shared a book with the Year 1's all about Leaf Man. Once inspired, we went off to explore the Forest School site, look for changes and gather up some bits of nature to take back to the classroom. The children then used water colours and their leaves, twigs and seeds to create fab land art pictures!
A right Royal time
We've had a lovely few weeks in the sunshine at Forest School.
To commemorate the Royal wedding, we had cucumber sandwiches, scones and jam - put together by the children. Some of them also chose to make nature crowns, pictures and swords.
This week, we had a go at making candles; we heated the wax up on the fire, added a wax crayon for colour and pure it into jars.
