Year 1 forest school group used a mallet, different types of leaves and white fabric to create fantastic leaf printed patterns.
Year 1 have been learning about self portraits. They have looked at the features of a face and drawn themselves using pencils. They then traced over their own photos onto laminating pouches.
Year 1 have been reading The Tiger who came to tea. They have sequenced the story, described the characters, hot seated the characters and acted out the story. Here are some pictures of them making their own puppets and retelling the story!
Forest school last Friday was so hot so we made our own vanilla ice cream! We mixed ice and salt in one side of the ball, and cream, sugar and vanilla essence in the other. After half an hour of playing games rolling the ball we ended up with delicious ice cream!
The year 3’s had a go at making really muddy water look clean again. They created their own filter out of natural materials and poured the muddy water through. Some of them managed to make their water really clear! We discussed the importance of tree roots to protect from flooding and cleaning water.
