This week has been ‘Forest School Week’. The aim of the week was to introduce all of the school to different aspects of the forest school style of learning and to raise money to develop of forest area. We also took the opportunity to complete some house team based activities.
On Monday, the whole school split off into their house teams in the afternoon. They took part in 4 different activities across the course of the afternoon. Each team worked on a carousel of activities, one completing a natural activity in the woods, one decorating stones, one creating their team flag for sports day and one classroom activity about the animal they sponsor in their house teams.
The children were also set other challenges across the week. These included; creating a nature shoe box, den building, a themed ‘Thumbs Up Thursday’ which included creating natural photo frames and a natural scavenger hunt in some classes.
