In forest school today, using specific language, Year 5 have had a go at creating an obstacle course which they would later test themselves.
Children in Year 5 experimented and explored pop-up books.
With an audience in mind (Year 1), we started to brainstorm ideas of books our audience might enjoy reading. With a design and a clear structure ready, we began to make the characters/objects and the mechanisms of each page.
From altering street art created by ‘Banksy’ in the light of the British Values to creating symmetrical, abstract forms to generating messages using purely visual symbols to recreating a piece of art from the First World War into a freezing frame to developing ideas for 3D work through sketching having Magdalene Odundo as inspiration. What a great day! Well done to all of you, Year 5. You should be really proud of everything you have achieved today!
Today all the children had a session in our outdoor forest classroom. They worked collaboratively on a range of challenges. Our THRIVE approach underpins all that we do in forest school. What a wonderful day of learning.
It’s really exciting to see more children accessing their learning through Google Classroom. However, we know that new things (especially technology!) can be daunting so i’ve put together some videos to guide you through the basics. As a well known song says, ‘let’s start at the very beginning’!
