Ninja Warrior Course Designers and Testers

posted 9 Jul 2019, 10:57 by Jenny Sparkes

The children made their own obstacle course at Forest School which turned into a Ninja Warrior course. They used their knotting skills to tie the ropes and make it exciting. The children loved the trapeze and spiders' webs as well as the ramp at the end. Brilliant teamwork, great skills and lots of fun!

Author Visit

We enjoyed the visit by the author Clare Welsh. She shared two of her stories with us and we helped to act some out. We made our own rude ducks and sand art treasures.

We're going on a bug hunt (making a house for woodlouse)

posted 17 May 2019, 12:49 by Jenny Sparkes   [ updated 17 May 2019, 12:51 ]

We are carrying out an experiment to find out where a woodlouse would choose to live. We made a house for a woodlouse! Half of it was dark and half of it was light. We made it a woodlouse habitat by covering the bottom with soil and then collected woodlice to try out their new home. We are going to find out if they choose the dark or light end of their home. (We think they will choose the dark side!)

Year 1s having fun

The Year Ones have been learning outside a lot this term. They have enjoyed learning rugby, den building in our new play area, helping with cooking at Forest School and counting in twos with wellies to help. They've been very busy and done lots of learning.

The Year Twos have been trying lots of new challenges recently. They have enjoyed their first few rugby sessions, honing their knotting skills, fire lighting  and trying cooking and tasting different foods at Forest School. (rainbow noodles and wild garlic butter)
