Easter S'mores & Marshmallows

The children in Forest School have enjoyed a fantastic treat today. Emma has taught us about Fire safety and how to light a fire using a flint. We described the flint as "hard" and "cold". The cotton wool was "fluffy" and "soft". We used our ears to hear the pops and crackles from the fire and the sizzle when Emma poured on the water.

Easter Egg Roll

It was our annual Easter Egg Roll on the lawn today. Children of all ages enjoyed having a go at rolling an Easter Egg and we cheered on our friends. We even had a special visitor - The Easter Bunny!

Tawstock Woods

The Forest School children set out on the minibus to Tawstock Woods. We enjoyed a wonderful walk through the woods looking at all the beautiful spring flowers and spent time exploring the area where we found lots of dens. The children made a pretend campfire and balanced on a fallen log. We rolled down the hill lots of times and it was so funny when we got stuck in the mud at the gate!

Forest School at Sticklepath School

We would like to say a huge thank you to Sticklepath School for inviting us to enjoy a Forest School lesson. We would like to particularly thank the Forest School Leaders for planning such a fun and enjoyable lesson and Year 4. The children enjoyed the musical instruments made from natural materials and trekking through the woodland as if we were 'Going on a Bear Hunt'! We were even given a bag made from a T-shirt and each child chose a musical instrument.

Trip to the Farm

A big thank you to Oscar's family for inviting Dragonflies to visit their farm. We were privileged to see a new born lamb enter the world, feed the chickens, collect the eggs, bottle feed the lambs, meet the horses and even sit in a real tractor!

World Book Day 2018

Children and staff arrived dressed as their favourite book characters today. We met Little Red Riding Hood, Woody from Toy Story, The Incredible Hulk & Bob the Builder to name just a few!

Rugbytots in the Snow!

On Wednesday 28th February, we enjoyed our Rugbytots session out in the snow. The children ran around keeping warm and played lots of fun games including the popular obstacle course.

Forest School Gnomes

Children attending Forest School ranging from Dragonflies right through to after school club, had a go at designing and making their own little Gnome. They gave each one character and were encouraged to think about their name, where they live, their hobbies and what they like to eat. Each little Gnome was given a little hat and scarf because it has been freezing this week!
