What a fantastic Forest School session – our first one at the farm! We loved our walk there, thinking about habitats and trying to identify trees by looking at their leaves – we even found some mice, although they were wooden!

When we arrived we had a look around the farm, thinking about how we should behave in this new environment and ate our snack. Then it was time to start our new learning….

We looked at plant lifecycles with Mrs Platts, learnt about animal food chains with Mrs Barker – do you know what the difference is between ‘predator’ and ‘prey’? Mrs Grayson took us on a mini-beast hunt looking specifically for bees and Mrs Simpson helped us to make our very own herby flatbreads!

Do you know who Barbara Hepworth was? She was an artist and sculptor. We looked at pictures of her work and used these to inspire our very own ‘natural’ art. We even named our sculptures – ‘The Square of Nature’ and ‘The Tower of Nature’! We also did some weaving with natural materials.

Have a look at the photos from our wonderful day.
