This week Owls and Hedgehogs had their first forest school session with Miss Smith. The children were very excited to get dressed into their waterproofs and wellies ready to visit the secret garden. The children found base camp and sat in a circle listening sensibly to the rules they have to follow to keep safe during forest school. They then had the opportunity to explore the forest and find one item to talk about with the other children. The children had a great time exploring and were very excited to tell Mrs Gardner and Miss Funnell all about it when they returned to class.
This half term we have been learning about birds. We have learnt names of some common birds, played games- robin's lost in the forest and bird bingo, made nests using tweezers like bird beaks and had a go at bird watching.
In PE we have made obstacle courses, practicing balance and jumping and using positional language and played stuck in the mud.
