In science this week Year 2 have been exploring the school garden to find as many different habitats as possible. The children knew they’d found a habitat because a living organism was there.
Nursery went outside to observe the changing season and collect colourful leaves. Our challenge was to try to find different autumn colours, but not green. We enjoyed throwing sycamore seeds into the air and watched them twirl like helicopters. Back at nursery, we tore the leaves to make the prickles on a hedgehog.
Year 4 and Year 6 joined together to take part in a forest school session within the school grounds. The children found out about the Native American’s use of journey sticks. The children were then able to make their own journey sticks. These sticks tell the story of the journey they took part in during their forest school session. The activity also enabled the children to practice their skills of tying knots to attach items to the string. The children partnered up with someone from the opposite class and really enjoyed working together to create their journey sticks.
