Our first two weeks
What a fun start we have had in Seashells Class!
Week 3 - Forest School
This week not only have the Seashells experienced their first PE, dough disco and science lessons but also their first trip to the Forest School.
For those who might not know, Forest School is a fantastic learning opportunity where the pupils get to experience the natural world and learn confidence and self-esteem with hands on learning.
We aim to go out at least once a day every day this week. On Monday, we talked about what natural things we could see in the forest school area and we listened to the story of Oi Frog. Then we had snack.
On Tuesday, we used our noses to smell as we were walking to the woods. We smelt freshly cut grass, and smoke! Mr Butler had lit a fire so that we could toast some marsh-mallows. We used long sticks so that we could hold the marsh-mallow over the fire without getting burnt. We had to blow on them 5 times before we could eat them. Here are some of the words we thought of to describe them:
Creamy, so good, tasty, crispy, gooey, soft, yummy, crunchy and the best!
After that we worked in small groups to collect the apples from the orchard. We found some on the ground and others we picked off the trees. On Thursday we are going to make them into chocolate apples, yum, yum!
