Foundation Stage Family Forest School Sessions (12.10.22)

Mrs Janvier (Mrs-Janvier) on: Forest School Blog

This term we have held 3 after school forest school sessions for our Foundation Stage families. Each session has started with a story, followed by an activity or two, snack and hot chocolate around the fire and ends with a rhyme. There have been lots of smiles from our children, sharing time with their parents or grandparents in our beautiful outdoor area. We've made clay hedgehogs, autumn crowns and autumn wreaths, as well as developed our hammering and threading skills and creating autumn inspired potions. We've toasted marshmellows around the fire and had some soup during our slightly chillier session. We'll be running three more sessions next term so please do come along and join us. 

          


Tools Skills

Excellent tools skills displayed by Year 4 today using bow saws. Tool talk, using the tool table, using the bow saw safely and efficiently and great teamwork!

Early signs of Autumn in our school grounds as we enjoyed our hot chocolate!

This week Y6 tried out zapa home. Look at the wonderful results!


Lent Outdoors

Mrs Janvier (Mrs-Janvier) on: Forest School Blog

All classes have been on their outdoor Lenten Journey over the last few weeks.

Year 6 took advantage of the freshly cut grass to create a labyrinth. The labyrinth always leads us to the centre - Christ.

Year 5 have created Lenten Gardens. These will grow with the promise of new life at Easter.

Year 4 have been exploring the Stations of the Cross, journeying with Jesus. Year 2 used lashing and knotting skills to create beautiful crosses.
