Frozen frosty leaves
Last nights frost left some lovely shapes and patterns in the ice, making near perfect coloured windows.
Flowers finally fade with the first frost of the season.
The children in Forest School enjoy toasting Marshmallows around the camp fire, and a Piñata. A great time was had by all, providing a fitting end to the first half term of the new Outside Learning program.
Dens and goo were the order of the day for outdoor learning. Working together the children had great fun creating a fantastic woodland den and some absolutely revolting goo.
Working and communicating in Forest School. The children work together as they create some simple working tools form old logs.
Exploring the different types of fungus found in our own fabulous forest.
Collecting and preserving seed for next year. This time of year provides many opportunities to save seed for next years planting, the nasturtium seed will be dried in the polytunnel labeled and packed in to paper bags so the children can plant it out in spring, or even earlier in the polytunnel.
First of the summer produce from the children’s Pollytunnel. The children have planted and grown not only some lovely green peppers but they have also grown tomatoes, chillies and some herbs. Some of the produce will sold from the allotment shed to help raise money to purchase seeds for the coming months, so please support us if you like fresh school grown produce.
The school playground provided a resting place for one of our nocturnal friends who was discovered by accident sheltering behind one of our notice boards. Nobody disturbed the Bat who made a quick escape to the relative safety of the school building. This encounter prompted us to place our Bat Boxes made last term.
