Today, Armes class has their first Forest School session!
They explored outside finding minibeasts and enjoyed having a craft afternoon in the woodland area. Making animals out of clay, making dream catchers and using the gimlet drill for the first time to make a fidget spinner, the children embraced the cold and showed their calm side this afternoon. Armes class have a fantastic imagination and created some amazing creatures and models out of clay – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to their stories and seeing their characters come to life!
”I made a family of foxes like in the Forest School we did in Year 3! At night, the foxes are stone but in their enchanted wood, they come alive in the evening!” – Kye
Using the new tool was difficult to begin with to make holes in the wooden discs for our fidget spinner but, with some perseverance and determination, we achieved it!
Next week we will be pond dipping and learning how to make our shelters more effective using our knot tying skills and creative problem solving.
Well done Armes class!
