Forest School

Monday, October 5th, 2015

This term, as a school, we are lucky enough to have a Forest School specialist coming in and giving our classes some time in the learning garden learning about all things outdoors!

On Monday 28th September, it was our class’ afternoon. We were shown how to make a fire safely and using the correct tools, and then what to do once we had finished with the fire. We absolutely loved it and gained lots of really useful skills. We can’t for the next session!

Getting Messy!

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Our topic this term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures.

On Wednesday 23rd September, we spent the afternoon attempting to get a clear liquid (as close to water as possible) using a variety of different equipment. It got really messy…

…and some groups came up with some great ideas and we eventually got some clean(ish!) water!

Childline Visit

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

On Monday 14th September, our class were visited by 2 lovely people from Childline.

First, we went to the village hall where Sheila and Robbie from Childline were waiting for us. They talked through a PowerPoint, which explained who Childline were and the work that they did. We were also introduced to a great way of remembering their phone number with hand movements, and Ruari managed to do this the fastest!

We then went back to the classroom, where Sheila and Robbie talked in more detail about the work Childline do and gave us an opportunity to discuss our feelings and opinions on  the different issues facing some children.

Before Sheila and Robbie left, they gave everyone their own ‘Buddy Kit’, where we could record places we like to visit, things we enjoy doing and all of the different people  we could ask for help if we needed it.
