Forest School week 1 - The Garden - 07.11.14

Activity 1:

I am learning to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products.

I am learning to work in the style of an artist.

We looked at the work of Andy Goldsworthy. We collected leaves from the garden and used them in our pastel firework pictures.

Activity 2:

I am learning to choose the right tool for the task.

I am learning to build structures and say how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable.

I worked with Barry to make an axe using natural materials.

Activity 3:

I am learning to identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend on each other.

We filled the bug hotels with straw, leaves and twigs. We investigated the garden to find different mini beasts. We discussed their different habitats.

Activity 4:

I am learning to choose the right tool for the task.

I am learning to build structures and say how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable.

We used natural materials to make a web for the King. It had to be strong and stable.

Activity 5:

I am learning what makes a good photograph.

I am learning to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

We used the zoom in function and tried to take our photos from interesting angles.

We downloaded the photographs from earlier in the day and decided which ones to put in our class folder and which ones to delete. We looked at our PowerPoint on the school website.

Forest School Week 2 - The Garden - 14.11.14

Activity 1:

I am learning to explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive.

We worked with Mrs Everitt to sort things into living/once alive/non-living. We discussed what all living things can do (Seven Life processes).

Activity 2:

I am learning to choose the right tool for the task.

I am learning to build structures and say how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable.

I worked with Barry to make a toy bird.

Activity 3:

I am learning to explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive.

We investigated some owl pellets with Neville to see what we could find. We found the remains of some shrews and mice.

Activity 4:

I am learning to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

Mrs Gillott helped us to choose the best photographs for our website. We uploaded and edited the photographs. We decided what to write next to each photograph and made a PowerPoint.

Activity 5:

I am learning to use a range of materials creatively to design and make products.

I am learning to work in the style of an artist.

We looked at the work of David Hockney. We made some observational drawings of the trees in the garden.

Forest School Week 3 - The Farm - 21.11.14

Activity 1:

I am learning to identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend on each other.

Neville and Mrs Everitt showed us a badger’s habitat. A badger’s home is called a sett.

Activity 2:

I am learning to describe how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain, and identify and name different sources of food.

We identified the plants/animals in an owl food chain.

Activity 3:

I am learning to make careful observational drawings.

I sat by the fire and used pastels to draw what I could see. I used words to describe the sounds and sights of the flames.

Activity 4:

I am learning to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

I am learning how to use a digital camera. I can edit my pictures so I only keep the ones I think are of a good quality

Forest School Week 4 – The Garden - 28.11.14

Activity 1:

I am learning to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

I am learning how to use a digital camera.

I can edit my pictures so I only keep the ones I think are of a good quality.

I am learning to make a power point.

Activity 2:

I am learning to choose the right tool for the task. I am learning to build structures and say how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable.

I used the correct materials and tools to make a twig star.

Activity 3:

I am learning about different forces. I am learning to identify push/pull.

I identified examples of different forces in the garden. I used the bow saw and identified if it was a push or a pull.

Activity 4:

I am learning to find out how the shapes of objects made from some materials can be changed by some processes, including squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.

I am learning to explore and describe the way of making butter.

We made some butter. We talked about materials and how they change when heated.

I can say if the change is reversible/irreversible.

Activity 5:

I am learning about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

We created some art work in the style of Georgia O’ Keeffe. We used appropriate colours and shapes to draw leaves and then made a collage.

Forest School Week 5 - The Garden/Farm - 05.12.14

Activity 1:

I am learning to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.

I am learning about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

We looked carefully at Georgia O’ Keeffe’s art work. We used her work as inspiration for our own. We made careful observational drawings of leaves.

Activity 2:

I am learning to identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend on each other.

I am learning to describe how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain, and identify and name different sources of food.

We discussed a bird’s habitat. We identified how this habitat changes from season to season. We worked in groups to make a ‘Twig star bird feeder’. We threaded popcorn and cranberries on to it, then hung them on the trees.
