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.

Yarty 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 Yarty class (Year 2 & Year 3) 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.

The sessions form the stimulus for most of our learning back at school, hopefully giving the children a rich and challenging experience to reflect on.

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.

Red Nose Day 2017

This year we raised £107.40p on Red Nose Day.

Funny Faces  –  The children came to school with:

  • Face paints
  • Masks
  • Funny hats
  • Headbands
  • Comedy glasses
  • Wigs
  • Fake nose etc

Jokes  –  During the day there were various joke themed activities, where the children were able to tell jokes to their class, to other children, to adults etc.  The children brought in spare change (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p) to donate when they either hear a good joke, or to pay someone to tell them a joke.  These coins were collected for the Red Nose Day appeal.

World Book Day

What a lot of lovely costumes we had for World Book Day.    This was a fabulous day, we were so impressed with the efforts that went into the outfits.  The children also brought from home a book to donate, which allowed every child in the school to choose a free book to keep.   Many of the children were reading their new books at playtime – great to have such enthusiasm for reading.

Yarty Class Wetlands Visit

It seems that Yarty class had an absolutely fabulous time at the Seaton wetlands, they all came back suitably muddy and totally buzzing with stories of what had happened!  Mr Davis was very pleased, everybody behaved well and was sensible for the whole day and learnt loads.  It is always great to hear the children enjoying themselves; they are now looking forward to their ‘Forest School’ sessions in the Summer Term.
