Year 5 have had an exciting week building shelters for Roz and Brightbill (the two main characters in their English text, The Wild Robot). First they had to forage for natural materials and then work with their teams to design and construct a sturdy home. It was trickier than it looks and very messy! They had great fun doing it and had to work well together to problem solve when things didn’t quite go to plan.

In Science this week Green class and Emerald class have been planting daffodil bulbs. We have been learning all about plants and what they need to survive. We will see if our daffodils will grow in the Spring. Jade class will also be planting bulbs over the next few weeks.
Forest Schools – Crimson group came out again last week- we had so much fun. The bird feeders we made last week were empty so the birds must have had a feast while there was no-one in the woods. We lit a fire and everyone made a spark with the ‘dragon’s breath’ fire- steel. While it was warming up the children made dens in two groups with Miss Mc Hugh- Hill and Miss Bibi. We looked at the popcorn kernels and then put them in the Dutch oven pan over the fire and while they popped we sat around the fire and sang the Popsicle song led by Miss Bibi- even the quietest children knew the words and it made us laugh. We ate our popcorn then everyone made it back to class for some lunch – Ellie Two Hoots Outdoor Learning.
