I’m Stick Man, that’s Me!

I’m Stick Man, that’s Me!

Reception enjoyed reading and exploring the story of Stick Man last week. During outdoor learning the children spent time looking for the perfect stick and other resources to create their very own Stick Man! The children were thrilled with their finished products!

Nursery’s Happy Hedgehog Band

Nursery’s Happy Hedgehog Band

Our story in Nursery this week has been ‘The Happy Hedgehog Band’. We listened to the story and copied the beat of the hedgehogs playing their drums.                                                                                                                                           

The boys and girls enjoyed the story so much that they decided to make their own band. We looked around the Nursery garden to find our own natural instruments. The children made drums using sticks and pots, whilst some of the other children made a rustling sound using crispy leaves. We came together to form our own band and played our instruments just like in the story.

Outdoor Learning with Reception

Outdoor Learning with Reception

In outdoor learning, we have continued to explore the story of ‘Leaf Man’. We have thought about the animals that Leaf Man saw on his journey. We have thought about the setting of the story and have talked about vegetable patches, meadows, orchards and lakes. We have collected our own autumnal natural materials and have created our own animals. 

 

Skara Brae shelters

Year 3 have been recreating the village of Skara Brae. The children worked as a class to find a suitable space. Following this they then collected natural resources and used these to make a miniature Stone Age village.

Shelters

In DT, year Six are looking at different types of shelters. As part of their outdoor learning they were asked to create a mini shelter from natural materials. Some were more successful than others but everyone knew what they needed to do to improve them.
