Forest School Day 3

Standard

This week was our final week of Forest Schools. We had fun with the clay making creatures and homes and then searched for wiggly worms! We will miss our Forest School sessions but can’t wait to start exploring the secret garden ourselves! Check out our video below to see what we got up to this week…

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

Yesterday was our Mother’s Day Celebration. To celebrate we made cards for our mummies. We drew pictures of our mummies and thought about what they looked like, what colour their eyes and hair were and what they like to wear. We chose how we wanted to decorate our cards.

Then we made our mummies a special present. We used clay to make a sculpture that we thought our mummies would like. We added jewels and stars and beads to make them extra special.

Then we learnt a special song to sing to our mummies for Mother’s Day. It was called Skidamarink…

Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a do, I love you

Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a do, I love you

I love you in the morning and in the afternoon, I love you in the evening and underneath the moon,

Skidamarink a dink a dink, Skidamarink a do, I love you, I love you too boo boo bi doo!

We performed our song for our mummies and gave them presents

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Standard
The Three Billy Goats Gruff

After building lots of bridges to save the gingerbread man we decided to read the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Everybody loved the story! All week the children retold the story and acted it out with the goats, on the bridge outside and at group times…

Lots of the children were inspired to produce some AMAZING home learning all about The Billy Goats Gruff …

Olivia’s beautiful Billy Goats Gruff scene inspired lots of clay work to create trolls and goats

 

We built lots of bridges with all different types of blocks and in the workshop too, we had to work as a team and test our bridge to see if it was string enough…

In Maths we learnt about the size of the Billy Goats then followed instructions to put them in different positions…

We were learning to..

  • Retell the story
  • Give the characters voices
  • Remember what happened at the beginning, middle and end
  • Solve problems to build bridges of our own
  • Work together and share ideas
  • We learnt about size with the big, middle and little goats and position as we moved the goats around
  • Mould the clay into the shape we wanted and add features
