Blue Class Visit to Woodland School

Friday 16th March 2012
Signs of Spring
Primroses in bloom
Frogspawn...
Today we had a fabulous visit - the weather was kind to us and most of the children enjoyed the visit and the really long walk.
splashing IN puddles...


climbing OVER the gate...
...running ALONG the grassy pathway...


...scrambling UP the slippery bank...

...looking AT the uprooted tree.

Sitting INSIDE the den...

Using  a real saw....

...takes great concentration and perseverence


Snacking on apples..
                     






Swinging and using ropes...











Great fun, great learning....
A busy and productive day for everyone and then a chance to rest on the bus journey back to school!

Yellow Class Woodland School Visit

Monday 5th March 2012
The yellow class were first to visit the Roe Valley Country Park this term. Mick Conway accompanied us to the pond where we found frogspawn....There was an opportunity to touch and feel the wibbly wobbly jelly and then we put it back into the pond. It was a long walk to the pond

Climbing alone.....

....or with friends!!






Moving logs to search for Minibeasts

Exploring the woodland

And then back to the bus.

Red Class Woodland School Visit

Monday 12th March 2012

The Red class were excited to get back to Roe Valley. Today Mick took us on a long walk through the forest.






We stopped to listen to the River Roe


On our way to the pond

Ready, steady..... Go!





The pond at last!
We talked about animals who live in ponds and we all enjoyed exploring the frog spawn.




Back to our forest school!  Building bridges and balancing across them.




Mick has taught us well! We work together to search for minibeasts.  No log is left unturned!



We love a challenge! Building a den with Mick.


How many can fit in our den? Room for one more?



We've definitely worked up an appetite today!
Back to school for our pack lunches. For the Red Class, it doesn't get much better than that!
