Thank you to everyone who came to the woods this afternoon 🙂 The woods got a little bit spooky this afternoon when we carved pumpkins and made witches potions.
Year 6 must be really enjoying their work on crime and punishment because they were able to tell me some really gruesome things they have learnt. This afternoon we became detectives to try and solve a crime and find out who committed it. We looked at the crime scene, listened to witness statements and alibis … Continue reading
Kyle and Harrison worked together to collect things to make their magic potions.
It was very windy today so I had to make extra sure that it would be safe for us to go in the woods. This morning F2 looked for leaves and seeds. We noticed different colour leaves growing on the same tree. We also saw lots of leaves blowing around in the wind. This afternoon … Continue reading

The weather wasn’t good this afternoon, so we decided to put up some shelters to keep us a little drier. We got muddy! I was really pleased to see lots of collaboration and I could hear the children talking about their ideas for making the shelters. Once we had the shelters we talked about year … Continue reading
