  • The heavens dsci1089

    What a lovely walk we had to the Heavens. We saw bluebells, primroses and violets. We lay on the woodland floor and looked through the tree branches at the blue sky and the shapes they made. What will it be like when we return later this month?

    We were very lucky last week to have a visit from Tamsin. She works for Stroud Valley Project. She came to school to show us how to plant wheat seeds so that they would grow. We put a net up to stop the pesky squirrel. If the wheat is successful we will be able to harvest it in August and mill it in September to make harvest bread.

  • Design 023

    In all our topics we try to design, make and test our ideas. This week we tried to make a house for the Three Little Pigs that we could not blow down. We had to guess what would happen before we blew it. Some of us wanted to change our answers so we were right but being wrong is part of the learning process. If we F.A.I.L it is a First Attempt In Learning.

  • Forest school on a cold and frosty afternoon. 189

    Today we went in search of changes to the season. We took photos to show the frost and ice. We decided that river didn’t freeze because it was moving, that the creatures in the pond would survive and the heart bubble was incredible. It was only 1 degree and we were well wrapped up. Then we made a rustic Christmas tree. I wander if any in the church tomorrow will look as beautiful as ours.
