Today the children visited the woods to take part in Forest School. In today's session they whittled stick to make wands and then decorated them. The children also searched the woods for sticks and used their information sheets to identify the trees they came from. Towards the end of the session the children made skeletons using natural materials from around the woods.
What a fantastic busy week!
This week the children went on their Forest School morning, building dens for animals, exploring the environment for bugs and working as a team to build a giant birds nest.
Today we completed our 2 mile run for Bone Cancer, which was part of our Jigsaw (PSHCE) lessons . Within these sessions the children researched a variety of charities, thinking about the work people do, benefits people receive and how they can make a difference. Following this, the children focused on one charity, researched it further and then presented to the class. After the presentations the children voted for the one charity which we wanted to raise money for.
The Bone Cancer Charity was chosen, so children took their sponsor forms and began collecting sponsors.
Today was the day of the big run, all of the children took part in some way, either running, supplying drinks, setting out the course or being responsible for counting the laps. The children thoroughly supported the event, collecting lots of money and even encouraged their parents to come along to support.
Thank you to everyone involved.
All of the money collected is currently being counted.
