Thinking of buying waterproofs or wellies?
I have arranged with Mountain Warehouse (Taunton branch) for 10% off purchases. 'Vouchers' have been sent home. If you have misplaced yours, please pop into School and ask for another one.
We are really excited to be starting Forest School!!
Tomlinson and Dahl Classes have had their 'introductory' lesson.
In true fashion of Forest School our very first session with Tomlinson Class was 'rained off' in spectacular style due to thunder, lightning and torrential downpours on and off! The children were fabulous in the classroom though. They were all brave enough to take part in the 'feely bag' activity, putting their hand in, without looking to feel and describe an object. They used many different adjectives to describe their objects.
Cadie gave us a super idea for making Christmas decorations so watch this space coming up to Christmas!! (It's not that far away now!!)
Fantastic speaking and listening everyone, well done! I know they can't wait to get outside next week!
It's surprising how two days can be so different! Dahl Class were lucky enough to have a beautifully warm, sunny day for their introductory session. We went out into the copse to search for 'interesting' objects.
We have many 'eagle-eyed' children!! They found many interesting things from interesting leaves to part of a bird's egg, part of a tennis ball to burnt sticks as well as ants carrying small bugs to their nests and lots of little creatures.
Today we came back into class to talk with a partner about our objects (normally we will stay outside). Some pairs created super stories around their objects.
Clare even used her burnt stick to draw a picture! It's amazing what you can find doing Forest School!!
Watch this space - I'll upload more photos soon!!
A Grand Design - Forest School Style!
Dahl Class helped to make our first Forest School project - a leaf compost bin!
We looked around the copse for good places to make it. We had fun collecting
leaves with the help of Miss Brimble's and Miss Taylor's new 'favourite' machine - the leaf blower!
What will bring a smile to your face on a Tuesday afternoon? Make a giant leaf pile and jump in!
