This week as part of our Outdoor Learning, Class 8 made Tudor Gardens. Have a look and let us know what you think!
Last week we had outdoor days and had lots of fun. We were looking for summer minibeasts like wasps and honey bees. We found most of the bugs around the pond and the field. We have made a video of the pictures we took. Thank you Mrs Nicholls for our lovely outdoor day!
This time it was year 5/6 doing Learning Outdoors. They did some pond dipping and shelter building, both great fun! Now class 9 are keeping some newts, straight from the pond, in their class, there are currently 3 in the tank! Sadly 1 has died. Here are some pictures of what they did;
Last week, Mrs Nicholls had year 3/4 outdoors with her. She (I hope) had really good fun! Yesterday afternoon we interviewed two year 3s, Rowan and Claudia, they both told us what they did outside. They said that went throught the woods to find a flower that they planted last time they were out with Mrs Nicholls. Once they had found it, they had too mark it using a stick. Mrs Nocholls had said that they had to come and find it next time they go out. Once they had done all that, they all went to look at the pile of wood-chippings. They found out that when the put their hand in , it realized it was warm! They had a little discussion of why it was warm. Once they had finished their discussion they went back to the cabin a planted a sprinkle of cress seeds to take home and grow. They put them on some greese-proof paper, they had lots of diferent colours.
Thanks for all your infomation, Claudia and Rowan.

Last week with Mrs Nicholls, was … Year 1/2! We (surprisingly) did not know what they where doing, so we asked if we could interview some year 1/2 children. We interviewed Toby and David from year 1. Their main focus this week was signs of spring. That wasn’t all they did. They did some drawing of animals, they made some butterfly mobiles (not every group) , they went to the pond and they chose an animal and did a background for it! Toby and David said that if where to describe the day in one word the would say: Green,Great and really fun!
Here are some of the pics thay took on this special day:

Outside we tried as hard as we could to find different types of birds in the bird hide we used binoculars totake a closer look at the birds we drew pictures of the birds.
Inside we used paints or pastels to make a picture of cinderella or an ugly step sister! Some people did prints.
We took pictures of winter we noticed the flowers were dying.

Last week, year 5/6 had their turn with Mrs Nicholls. As you probably know, it was really cold outside, so they had to dress up warm! Anyway, the teachers decided to make it a little different this week. Instead of four different groups at four different times, two groups went outside in the morning together, but they did different things. One planted broad beans with a L.S.A, while the other group did some bird watching and made bird cakes. Each group had an hour on planting, then an hour on bird watching and making bird cakes, or vise-visa. Meanwhile, the other two groups made bird feeders out of recycled materials, such as yogurt pots and milk bottles. Finally, a couple of days later, they hung up their bird feeders before filling them with feed. Also, we got some pictures of the bird cakes – enjoy!

Last week year 3/4 were outdoors with Mrs Nicholls – their main focus was birds. Because of assessments, they two groups in the morning and two groups in the afternoon. One of the groups had to make bird cakes – they made balls of lard, then stuck seeds in them. After that, they were told to hang them in the trees next to the bird hide. Another group hung a bird feeder with a net around it, then the last two groups went to find the bulbs they planted the last time they were outside. They remarked the spot so they could find it next time. They also sprinkled a handful of bird seed in the woods. All of the groups were allowed go into the bird hide and watch the birds with binoculars – some of the children remembered to bring in their own. They all had lots of fun and enjoyed all of the activities – thank you Mrs Nicholls!!!
