Axe Class Forest School
Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment” – The Forest School Association
The children of Axe class (Reception & Year 2) visit Forest School once a week during the first half of the Summer term. The whole day takes place outdoors and the children take part in a range of making, creating, and exploring tasks.
Here are a few pictures from Forest School. More to follow over the coming weeks.
Parachute and Skipping Festival
Our reception and year 1 children attended our parachute and skipping festival which involved a colourful display of parachute games, including fun games to help coordination. The parachute games encouraged cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and sharing. The parachutes also help strengthen the children’s upper torso. The children worked together to make the parachute billow, they also refine perceptual motor skills and develop a sense of rhythm.
The children also completed a variety of skipping stations which helped them learn the skills to skip. These included skipping with long ropes; french skipping and rhymes; electronic skipping; hoop skipping and jumping activities.
