FLEARN

On 22nd May we had another fab visit from Mike Mullen -3x Pro BMX Halfpipe Champion and Former World Master Champion.  Once again, he came in and started the day with an assembly that reminisced about his life and encouraged the children to keep going and never give up; whatever their passion, continue to work hard and -if you fail -  pick yourself up, dust yourself down and have another go!  

Throughout the day, each class got to take part in a workshop with Mike.  He taught some children to ride a bike, boosted the confidence of others and encouraged all of them to be daring and step outside their comfort zone.

At the end of the day, he put together a small team of children to take part in a show for the rest of the school and parents.  To the amazement of the children, he even jumped over 7 teachers and parents!!

If the day did anything, then hopefully it inspired children to dust of their bikes and scooters and get outside.  

Bee-Bot Maths

We’ve been learning about how many right angles are in a turn. To help us we’ve been using the Bee-Bots and compasses. We had a lot of fun moving the Bee-Bot and working out different directions for it to go.

'It's just great to be free!'

It was our last Hawking Forest School today (Easter Service next week), and so we finished our session by reflecting on what they have enjoyed about their time outdoors.  It was so lovely - after watching and observing them outside during the term - to hear what they had to say.  We as adults felt that they had grown in confidence, become more independent and creative, worked better as a team and had started to use more initiative.  This is what they had to say; 'I like being creative and making things'; 'I like coming together as a group and eating new food'; 'I like being able to play with my friends'; 'I like being able to play and be imaginative in the mud kitchen'; 'It's just great to be free!'  

Hopefully the children will take some of the skills that they have acquired at Forest School and apply them to other areas.

Cotswold Wildlife Park

We had such a good time at Cotswold Wildlife Park today!

We saw lots of different animals and learnt lots of interesting and cool facts about them.

We had a talk with one of the keepers about Predators and Prey and how different animals protect themselves from harm.

Although we didn't manage to see everything, we had a great time and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Fun in the sun

After the recent cold and wet weather, it was lovely to have a warm, sunny afternoon at Forest School.  The children went their different ways, enjoying the particularly muddy Mud Kitchen (!), whittling, creating dragons and make Elder pencils.  We even had our very own viewing of the Falcons when they 'dropped in' to a field nearby!

It has been lovely to see the children develop over the term and becoming increasingly creative and confident in all that they do.
