Forest School Week 1 - The Farm - 12.9.14

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 Harris showed us a badger’s habitat. A badger’s home is called a set.

Activity 2:

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

I sorted a set of objects into different groups: living, non-living and never been alive. I had to give reasons for my choices.

Activity 3:

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

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.

Activity 5:

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

I used natural materials to make paints and then splattered the pain onto a large canvas. We were inspired by the work of Jackson Pollack. 

In the afternoon we made dens and explored the woods.

Forest School Week 2 - The Garden - 19.9.14

Activity 1:

I am learning to read lots of different stories, fairy stories and traditional tales.

I am learning to predict what might happen from what I have read so far.

Mrs Shaw read us a story called The Sweetest Fruit. The story didn’t have an ending so we had to decide how the story would end.

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

I am learning to use drawing to share my ideas, experiences and imagination.

Mrs Gillott brought a dead mole in from her garden. We talked about habitats and then carefully drew the mole.

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 to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content

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.

In the afternoon we made collages of the greedy fox, made apple and blackberry crumble and cut bottles ready for the greenhouse. 

Forest School week 3 - The Farm - 26.9.14

Mrs Harris read us the story of the Stannington Boggart. Boggarts live in woods and near streams; they hide in holes in the wall so if we look closely on our travels we might see one or two!!

Activity 1:

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

I used the natural materials around us at the farm to make the Boggart of Stannington.

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 natural materials at the farm to build a Boggart den. If you look closely you might see a Boggart sneaking inside.

Activities 3 and 4:

I am learning to identify and name a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including micro-habitats

I collected natural materials and named them before putting them somewhere safe for the boggarts to use when it is winter.

Activity 5

I am learning to become increasingly familiar with and retell a wider range of stories, fairy stories and traditional tales

I am writing down ideas and/or key words, including new vocabulary.

I am learning to write what I want to say, sentence by sentence

I had to pretend to be a boggart! I had to think of my boggart name and job, and then I made myself a boggart passport.

In the afternoon we made boggart and fairy houses.

Forest School week 4 - The Garden - 3.10.14

Activity 1

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

I learned how to upload the photographs from last week and import them into a PowerPoint for the school website.

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.

Barry and Neville helped us to make birds.

Activity 3

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

I worked with Mrs Simpson to learn how to light a fire safely.

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 some everyday materials change when they are heated or cooled.

I worked with Anne to make butter from milk. We toasted bread on the fire and added our home made garlic butter, it was yummy!

Activity 5

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 and making links to their own work.

I looked closely at the work of Davis Hockney and replicated it using pastels.

Forest School week 5 - The Garden - 17th October

Activity 1

I am learning to understand that both pushes and pulls are forces.

I am learning how pushes and pulls make things move in our environment.

I was a Forces Detective looking for different forces being used in the garden.

Activity 2

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

I learned how to upload the photographs from last week and import them into a PowerPoint for the school website.

Activity 3

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 and Neville to make toys using junk modelling and natural materials.

Activity 4

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

I am learning to identify pushes and pulls.

I worked with Peter and Mr Dawson to make bows and arrows. We investigated whether a lighter arrow travelled further than a heavier arrow.
