Fun at Forest School !

Summer time is our favourite time at Forest School. This week the children had lots of fun cloud watching, bug hunting under the logs, sweeping the nets for bugs and shaking the tree to find out what bugs were living there. During our time there they learnt some important facts about various insects.

Our new summer topic-

Pirates and the Sea

To start our new topic off with a bang we had a pirate dress up day, where the children were invited to come to school dressed in pirate attire.

As part of their pirate activities, the children sang songs, made their own treasure maps, decorated their 'ship's biscuits' with pirate designs of their choice and took part in a pirate ship problem solving activity.

What an exciting day!

How to make a chair using newspaper !

With the help of Mrs Suer (teaching the children) and Mrs Michie (organising the event), the children learnt how they could make items of furniture using newspaper and a STIXX machine. The children listened so well and were totally enthused about it...it was truly amazing !

The paper was rolled, put through the machine to stiffen it and then the sticks were tied together to make a shape.

Summer Term topic-Out of Africa

During this term the children learnt about some of the different animals from Africa. For instance, they learnt some interesting facts about what the animals eat, their general survival and how camouflage helps them in the wild.  

Our visit to Colchester Zoo

As part of our topic we went to look at some of the animals at Colchester Zoo. The children were all very excited as we left school by coach. The children saw some very interesting animals, had a train ride and they learnt some interesting facts about camouflage. However, for most the favourite part of our visit was that the children got to feed the giraffes and elephants.

World Book Day 2nd March

The children and teachers came to school dressed as a character from a favourite book.

Picture 1

Reception had a very exciting afternoon, as Mr King began by reading them a Mr Men story.

The children in Goldsworthy were still very excited as they were joined by the children in Warhol class (Year 6).

Mr Ferguson (Willy Wonka) and Mrs Rossiter (Bottomley Potts) shared the reading of Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy.

After, the children in Warhol class worked patiently with Goldsworthy class to identify rhyming words and write about their favourite part from the story.

 

What a wonderful afternoon !

Our topics this term

' Do you want to be friends? '

' Why do squirrels hide their nuts? '

Our autumn walk

We went to the park to search for signs of autumn.

We were looking for changes.

 What did we find?

 

The children noticed that the leaves were starting to change colour...from green to red, yellow, orange, purple and brown.

They noticed that lots of the leaves and twigs had fallen from the trees and were lying at the base of the trees.

They saw that there were lots of berries on the bushes.

They picked up acorns and pointed out that they too had fallen from the trees.

We saw a squirrel collecting nuts and imagined where he was nesting.

We guessed where he may have hidden the nuts.

New topic- Fairy Tales and Castles

 

Welcome back after the Easter break!

 

We have been learning all about castles and the people who lived in them.

To help us with our learning we visited Leeds Castle.

We looked around the castle grounds at the main gate, portcullis, murder holes, the Barbican, towers, battlements and some very noisy ducks!

The Three Little Pigs

Our class book for the day was the Three little Pigs. In the morning the children heard the story and took part in some role play. They re-enacted it and used face masks, hand puppets and sequencing cards to help re-tell the tale.

They enjoyed making pig masks and pigs, using junk modelling. We talked about the building materials which the pigs had chosen to use for their houses. They really enjoyed re-creating the pigs houses, using different materials, all the while discussing which house would keep the pigs safe from the Bad Wolf.

Goldsworthy class had the job of helping Matisse class to illustrate their stories. They all worked so hard and so well together...it was wonderful!

Chinese New Year

We learnt all about Chinese New Year-this is the year of the monkey! The children took part in some role play to retell the story of The Great Animal Race. We learnt lots of interesting facts. For example, that Chinese people think that red is a lucky colour and gold means wealth.  

We made our own passports and used tickets to board the plane to China. As we flew over China we saw some places of interest-The Great Wall, The Terracotta Army, Shanghai.

Whilst we were in China we visited a Chinese restaurant. The children chose the name-The Golden Dragon. In the restaurant, as we listened to some Chinese music, we tasted some Chinese food, just to see if we liked it-prawn crackers, soya sauce, noodles, vegetable spring rolls.

Jump Rope Day for The British Heart Foundation

The whole school took part in this very active day.

Just after our special British Heart Foundation assembly, led by Miss Foley, we went outside to warm up. We practised our skipping activities-we skipped on our own and in groups and soon we were all so warm that we forgot how cold it was outside.

Throughout the day we learnt all about eating healthily and how important it is to do regular exercise to keep our hearts healthy.

Our first spring term topic- Dinosaurs 

The children have been learning all about dinosaurs...the names of some of them, what they looked like, what they ate and why they are now extinct. They have been very excited and can't seem to get enough knowledge about the dinosaurs.

Squirrel watch

The children learnt that the birds and squirrels were collecting food in preparation for the winter. We decided to help them by leaving nuts and bird feeder bags outside the classroom. We hoped to catch a glimpse of them as they took the food. 

A completely empty bag...we think there are some hungry squirrels in the neighbourhood!
