Church Visit

In preparation for the Harvest Festival Nightingales class visited the church last week. The children were sensible crossing the roads and were able to talk about road safety. They had time to explore the church building before finding out where they would be sitting next week when the whole school and parents will also be there. We talked about what the font is used for and found some familiar names on the christening roll.

 Thank you to the parents who accompanied us.

Hapa Zome

Sometimes you get to Forest School and you know exactly what you're going to do; today was one of this days!  It was a little windy today - the perfect conditions to make a flag!  The children found leaves and did some Hapa Zome (leaf bashing!) to make patterns on material, and then fixed it to a stick to make a flag!

Story stones

We started off on the 25th September with some storytelling around the campfire.  The children then went off to search for story stones that the older children had painted and hidden around the site.  If they found one, they could then go off and hide it somewhere else for someone else to find.  

Plenty of sawing again this week, as well as looking at the seasonal changes happening around us.

Chocolate Crispie Cakes 

This week in our Friday cooking session Nightingales made chocolate crispy cakes, following on from Elliot's suggestion last week. Our focus was looking at changes as we observed what happened to the ingredients when they were heated in the microwave then set again in the fridge. Children particularly enjoyed breaking the chocolate up with a hammer!

We will be sharing our crispy cakes at snack time on Monday after our fruit. We will use this opportunity to practise counting to ensure we have enough cakes for everyone.
