19.06.17 Making Boats and Using a Bow -Saw.
In the warm weather today we enjoyed the shade from the trees and heard chapter 2 in the story from the Forest Club gang, they had left us a puddle boat to explore , so we tested it to see if it would sink or float. We then looked for our own natural and man-made resources to make our own boats, and of course we tested them too!
Beech class have been learning about safety using tools , they learnt how to use a bow saw to cut small discs and were very sensible , listening carefully to all the instructions. Well done!
06.04.17- Family Forest School Day
Thanks to the free trees for schools offer from the Woodland Trust the whole school and community were invited to help plant new trees and hedgerows, cut back large areas of bramble and help to dig over large areas of neglected and overgrown land within our Forest School and school fields area.
We were delighted to have so many people join us who were willing to tackle the growth and help as much as they could. The children all enjoyed being outdoors all day and helping out, learning lots of new skills from the adults and being very physical too.
Thank you to all who came and offered support, we all appreciate the hard work you did as it has made a huge difference to the area available for the children to learn in through their outdoor learning and Forest School sessions. Mrs Ganley x
