Our question for Term 1 is:
Why do we have to leave?
The philosophy of Forest School was based upon a desire to provide children with an education that encouraged appreciation of the natural world, and that would encourage a responsibility for nature conservation in later life. This term in our Forest School sessions, we have created "offerings" to give back to the forest as a way of showing our appreciation for nature and all that it provides us with.
As part of our topic on WWII, Eagle Class have cooked a dish from wartime UK: Woolton Pie. This was a popular vegetable hotpot which used ingredients that could be grown in people's gardens when food supplies were running low. The class developed their ability to prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques as well as understand seasonality, and know where and how a variety of ingredients are grown.
As part of our topic on WWII, Eagle Class listened to recordings of the Blitz. They then worked with a group to replicate the sounds of a blaring air raid siren, the crackle of gun fire and the deep booms of bombs falling. They used a wide range of percussion instruments and even thought about using symbols as a form of informal musical annotation to record their compositions.
Solve the clues! Eagle Class worked with a partner this week in their Active Maths session to solve a series of challenges which utilised their knowledge of a wide range of essential maths skills. Active Maths sessions are designed to help boost confidence and make Maths more engaging!
