Roots to Food: FS/Y1/Y2
Yummy stromboli! Well done to our young chefs.
We have been talking a lot about the changes that come with the seasons and what that means for wildlife. We discussed hibernation and what this means - and also about what a nocturnal animal is. The children made animal homes for soft toys, created clay hedgehogs and built ladybird houses to hang in their garden. They have also loved using the new bug hunting kit to hunt for mini beasts! We have picked blackberries and used them to make ink for drawing - as well as saving some to have with pancakes. The children have been very busy sawing, drilling, climbing, swinging, creating and having Forest School Fun!
Children worked cooperatively to weigh out and mix ingredients for their chocolate chip cakes. This activity develops turn taking skills as well as recognising numbers using the scales.
Our first PE session
Last week we had our first PE session and visited the park. The purpose of this first session was to get the children initially used to changing into their PE kit independently. We then observed the children’s climbing and balancing skills on the apparatus.
Regular PE sessions are scheduled for Wednesday afternoons but please ensure PE kit is in school at all times as unforeseen changes in routine can cause changes to the timetable at short notice, thank you.
The children arrived at Forest School this week to find an 'x' that marks the spot! they immediately began digging and found gold and jewels!!
We had lots of pirate activities from parrot bird feeders to pirate tree cookies; the children sawed and created, found life in the pond and climbed trees to be on lookout! Plenty of imaginative play as well as learning new skills!
