Ospreys Forest School
John Muir Award - Conservation
As part of Ospreys conservation element of their John Muir award, we went around the village litter picking … I think you well agree we did well.
We tried to build shelters, but the weather got the better of us, however it was fun.
The whole school took part in activities throughout the week.
On the final day we were asked what a scientist looked like.
The children came up with a classic image, mad, grey hair, glasses, white coat. Infact we are all scientists.
During the session the children were able to explore a human skeleton, see bugs and also handle them.

Science – States of Matter
We explored a variety of different States of Matter and investigated their properties - Come and look at our Class Science Book for more!
Jackdaws Forest School
We had to use our lateral thinking skills to solve problems, picked up an incredible amount of litter and made brilliant clay birds - Take a look at our "Forest School Snaps"in class for even more fantastic photos!
Creative in the Woods
Kingfisher were being creative in the woods making music, art, mud painting and embracing the mud jumping in it!
We had a fantastic time on our residential! We did some excellent activities – some science work with food chains, we followed a “night line” where we had to rely on each other and some good communication skills because we were blindfolded!
We did some campfire cookery, prepping soup, food and bread, and we made shelters in the forest. Excitingly, we went for a Night Walk in Hooke Woods, using our torches and lots of stargazing. We had to be quite brave! On the final day, we did the Low Ropes course – lots of teamwork happening here, and we really gelled across the two schools – and Orienteering. We came back EXHAUSTED.
Here are a selection of pictures from our Residential
Science Week Launch Assembly
In Jackdaws, we got a fantastic opportunity to look at bones and bugs, and thought about what Scientists looked like.
Across the whole school, we all had a similar picture in our heads of a scientist – a crazy-haired, spectacle-wearing, evil-genius!
Now we know that we are all scientists!
Wet Weather Play
Pipit class have been enjoying the wet weather and the big puddles that have formed in our playground.
They have explored colour by adding powder paints to puddles and then jumping in them to mix the colours together.
Some children then decided to use their freshly mixed puddle paint to decorate the walls.
Some of the children have really enjoyed digging in the mud with a proper spade.
They added water and made gloopy mud which sucked at their wellies! They took turns with the big spade and worked as a team to add water. Once they were finished they made a welly wash for their boots.
