Reception children worked in small groups to take part in an ‘Autumn Hunt’, they collected lots of red, brown, orange and green leaves, conkers, twigs, winged seeds and acorns. They had lots of fun on their first school trip.
Early years have adopted a new forest school pet. His name is Sherman and he is an African land snail.
Giant African Land Snails can live for up to 10 years in captivity, they can grow up to 12cm in length and a weight of up to 600g.
Year one have a new outside learning area which they have really enjoyed using. The children continue to develop many skills using the outdoors as their inspiration here are some photo’s!
This week, school council candidates have begun thinking about their campaign, creating posters and writing their speech. Campaigning will start next week, with the elections to follow.
Good luck to all our candidates and future politicians!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the fathers, grandfathers, brothers and uncles who joined us on Thursday for Fun For Fathers.
