25/3/24 Forest School – The Three Little pigs. The children had to find the different pigs with a friend. Then they made a pig’s head out of wood by sawing a piece of log, hammering it to a bigger piece of log and then drawing a face on it. Finally, they had to make a little house for their pig. We were lucky enough to have S'mores again. Yummy!

Mrs Taylor and Mrs Cumming took on the Rewild and Recycle challenges with Reception. In class we have a ‘compost corner’, where the children put their left-over fruit and peelings into a container and everyday it goes in the compost bins outside. Mrs Cumming explained to the children how composting works. Additionally, the children Recycle their milk cartons in the plastic recycling bin. Reception filled up the bird feeders with seed, scattered some wild flower seeds around the seating area in the big playground and filled up the bug hotel with recycled bottles, pine cones, egg boxes, stones and twigs.
