Scientific Experiment in Forest School- Our task was to build a shelter for our friend “ Chikondi” the giraffe 🦒 from CST and Bertie the Bear from “ Whatever Next” It had to be water proof - we checked it by pouring water 💦 over it and check if they were still dry. We left our little friends out over night with torches 🔦, food , water and blankets and will check them tomorrow to see how they survived. Night Night sweet dreams 😴
PE this week was exciting and challenging we had to use our Gross Motor Skills to access the large equipment. We practised climbing, balancing, jumping, swinging and even demonstrated our movements to our friends. All the children were so sensible remembering our safety rules knowing when to jump on a mat and how to land safely. Their listening skills were amazing when they heard the tambourine they knew to stop and get off the equipment safely and sit down. So proud of all our budding “ Athletes “
