Can you guess the theme of this forest at Tatton Park!

Well done to 6NA!

A massive well done to 6NA for achieving a forest school prize for making a brilliant start to their 'in-school John Muir Award activities.' Looking forward to completing the award with this class after Christmas! Make sure you keep coming up with ideas to of how to DISCOVER, EXPLORE, CONSERVE & SHARE.

Luminous Leaf Lanterns!

In year 5 & 6 we have been making some amazing lanterns, using the fallen autumn leaves.
This is how we made them and what they look like when they are lit up. We think they look fantastic.
Have a go at home! From, Year 6NA

Forest school stars!

This week Lexi  and Callum have been given an award for being helpful to staff and kind to the creatures in forest school. Well done!

The leaves are starting to change

Autumn has begun in forest school! So far we have started to see the leaves on our oak tree changing around the edges. We are hoping they will turn a lovely orange colour, how long do you think we will have to wait?

Year 3 thinks: 11 days
Year 4 thinks: 15 days
Year 5 thinks:  1 weeks
Year 6 thinks 14 days

Who will be right?

Super 6ED!

A huge well done to 6ED for winning a forest school star award last week! They were so kind, helpful and caring to their eggs and to each other during our lesson, I thought they all deserved the award! As you all know being caring is a key value for forest school. 
They were even treated to popcorn the following lesson!

Keep it up!

Egg-sellent nests!

We made some egg-sellent nests in forest school this week. We had an 'adopted egg' to look after for the whole session and built our egg its very own nest, where it could be warm and protected. 

What would you do to make your nest special? 

Remember to keep an eye out for nests in your back garden or in the park!

Fab first session back with 5SW & 3CF at forest school!

We have started with our new classes this week and what a week it has been!
2 lessons in beautiful sunshine.... following terrible wind and hail in the morning!

Well done to the children for completing a field study. They were finding lots of insect species, collecting them gently and marking on a map where they found them.
You would make excellent scientists!

Forest School reporters: Harvey and Megan 6BC

 Year 6 day in forest school was the best ever!
We were in groups of 4-5 people. There were two tasks to do on the field they were tree marking and den making.  We enjoyed the den making the most because we worked as a team to develop our learning abilities , to the highest level. We noticed some girls in their learning bubble and using their imagination, the boys were using their stick ability. Most people fell over in the sticky Icky mud and got very dirty. The weather was hot , damp , wet and breezy. We were outside with Miss Hughes . Do you like forest school? Try not to cut trees down. By Harvey and Megan 6BC.
