Forest School

Our pupils have really enjoyed their Forest School sessions this week. They’ve been on a bug hunt, collected items for their Nature Box, produced natural artwork using bark and leaves and found flora and fauna using identification cards. They’ve even learnt how to tie a figure of eight knot and a reef knot.

 

 

Religious Education

This week, RE has centered around ‘Being Chosen’, with the children listening to and re-enacting the story of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. In their lesson, the children explored how it feels to be chosen to do something special. An abundance of adjectives were suggested by the pupils and they were able to relate this to other key figures within the Bible.

Kindergarten 1 in the sunshine

Let’s go outside

At Winterfold, we love having the opportunity to get outside and continue our learning. The children in Year 1 have spent time getting to know each other and have enjoyed listening to stories outside in the sunshine. In Forest School, they also spent time finding lots of autumn leaves to make hedgehogs in art. The topic this term is Animals and the children have discovered interesting facts about animals that we  have as pets.

Science spotting stroll with Year 2

This week, Year 2 have been observing changes in our outdoor environment as part of the introduction to this term’s Science topic Living things. From their Science stroll, they brought back photos and samples of things they collected that signified the start of autumn, to be observed and identified on a ticklist in class.
