We have been doing lots of fun Pirate themed activities during Forest School. We have made pirate ships using logs, thrown cannon balls made of mud and learned how to tie knots !
We had lots of fun learning about recycling, what goes into the recycling bins and what doesn’t! We also got the opportunity to reuse plastic bags and weaved them together on the fences to make fantastic pictures. In the garden we planted vegetables and herbs. We also had the chance to create artwork using litter and make signs asking people to turn off lights and taps! A few children made eco pledges on wooden discs, they pledged to turn off lights, turn off taps and recycle materials etc… The children who are learning guitar learned a recycling song and Mrs Davis turned used milk cartons into wonderful pencil pots.

‘I got to learn about composting and that we should recycle things to make them new.’ (Max KS1)
Thank you to all the parents who kindley donated all of their plastic bags.
This Spring term the Owls gave a wonderful performance playing the Conga drums and ‘cups’ in front of their parents and friends. A huge thank you must go to Rob for teaching them how to play the instruments! The swifts learned an Easter song and played the xylophones. We had an array of talent in our Stannington’s got talent show, with ks2 showing us their guitar skills.
During Forest School we have been making spider webs and we went on a hunt for Easter eggs!
Despite the heavy rain, the Year 1 and 2 childen enjoyed making mini dens for their dinosaurs!
