Beech and Oak class have had a great time this term at Forest school. We’ve been out in all weather and have enjoyed doing and making lots of things. We’ve been looking at Autumn and the animals and birds that live on our site, we’ve had Gruffalo hunts, Welly walks, made trails and explored our woods. We’ve made Gruffalo’s, Stickmen, muddy autumn paintings and bird feeders and we’ve played with hammocks, dens and magnifying glasses. We’re looking forward to seeing how our site will change over the coming season and what we will do next!
We had a great time at Forest Schools this Halloween. We hunted for wicked witches hats hidden in the woods and then tried to find spooky spiders with our magnifying glasses. We also made a fantastic job of making our own spiders webs. Before we left to come back to school we just had enough time to fly around an assault course with our hats and brooms!
Some of our pupils have been lucky enough to be involved in the Garcia Famiky Foundation’s project with the Fruitmarket Gallery. As one of the six schools taking part, we visited the Fruitmarket Gallery for a workshop looking at the work of Jac Leirner. We’ve also had a workshop in school and made artwork inspired by the exhibition. Very excitingly, our artwork will be on show in the gallery this coming weekend from Friday 27th October until Sunday the 29th of October. Please come and have a look if you can!
