Our Learning

Here are some pictures of the children looking for signs of new life around school. They were able to learn about life cycles and how we often find signs of new life during Spring time. The children thought about how God gives living things new life and how this makes people feel. The children founds lots of plants and insects. they even found a small caterpillar!

Andy Goldsworthy – We have been looking at pictures by this artist. We created some of our own pictures in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. We used resources we found at Forest School.

Forest School – We are always incredibly busy at Forest School. Here we are on an Autumn Walk. We collected lots of leaves and explored what changes had happened.
