Each week, the children enjoy

linked to the topic or a chance to share an achievement outside of school. We
love hearing each other’s news and always have interesting questions to ask.
Forest School - On Monday 20th
November, Kingfisher Class enjoyed a fun afternoon taking part in forest
school, led by Yvonne Bell. They completed a range of activities, linked to the
science topic of habitats, which included: making clay tree creatures; making
wands out of elder wood; creating bug houses; and using willow to create woven
habitats for mini-beasts. The children worked brilliantly as a class and in
smaller groups, developing their skills of communication, team work and
perseverance. The whole afternoon was rounded off by toasting marshmallows on
the fire. Delicious! Thank you to Mrs Brown for helping us for the afternoon
and to Yvonne for leading a great session
