This term Year 1 have been taking part in Forest School sessions in our woodland garden. Forest School is an approach to learning which puts the outdoor environment at its centre. The children are encouraged to explore the natural environment, be creative and develop new skills.
So far we have climbed trees, created magical woodland creatures, used our senses to experience the forest and made pine cone bird feeders.
We've had lots of great fun and even got a little muddy too!
We have been lucky enough to do some 'Forest School' for Mixed Curriculum.
We learnt about the life of L.S. Lowry and discovered he is a famous artist from Salford near Manchester. We looked at examples of his artwork and found that he liked to paint a lot of factories and mills.
We then used berries and mud to create art work based on his paintings. Miss Davidge and Miss Ryan also taught us how to tie knots and we made lovely picture frames to put our work on to.
