A lovely Friday evening down in the woods. The children were amazed to see all their beautiful art work displayed for all to see on their newly named John Muir Tree. The wooden circles showing images, which represent each child, will stay on the tree to remind people of the individuals who took part in the project.
We had a such a brilliant time down in the woodlands on Monday afternoon with so much independent learning taking place. The children demonstrated so many skills including problem solving, teamwork and perseverance.
Stanley created rhythms using sticks and logs, San made an X using sticks to mark the spot where he’d hidden ‘treasure’ and Theo and Daniel hid dinosaurs amongst sticks and leaves stating they were ‘saving the dinosaurs from an erupting volcano’. What brilliant imaginations our children have!
Year 4 have had a very busy afternoon investigating food chains.
Each of the children were given a card, identifying them as a living thing from a food chain. They had to locate something that they would eat within the room. We then sorted the children into different food chains, and discussed how energy is produced by plants and is transferred along the food chain by consumers. The children identified predators and prey, and we even discussed threats to food chains, including the presence of plastic in the oceans.
The children worked really well and had lots of fantastic discussions. Well done Year 4!
We have had a marvellous messy morning! We have made nature paint brushes, flower bracelets, dinosaur dens, binoculars, danced in mud and climbed a massive mountain! We would love to hear what part of the day your child enjoyed the most.
A special great big thank you to Mrs Hassall and her team of helpers you have done an amazing job so far and we can’t wait for our next adventure to our lovely woodland.
