    Alien creations at Forest School!

    On Monday Wonwell class linked their forest school learning to the space topic. The children used playdough to make alien faces on tree trunks using natural resources.  We talked about the importance of keeping wildlife safe and used salt free dough as it  can be very harmful to creatures if eaten. They also had chance to make banana pancakes on the fire and explore the woodlands. What a busy morning! Please click here to see more pictures.

    Alien crash landing at School!

    This term the topic for Wonwell class is 'Moon Zoom'. There was great excitement  today as Steve, our caretaker, rushed in to tell us something amazing had happened. We went outside to discover a strange object that the children decided must be a spaceship! There were green footprints leading away and lots of green slime everywhere. The children looked for clues and much excitement and discussion followed. Someone said they thought they saw something in the sky at breakfast club and one child thought they saw some eyes in the bushes. The classroom was alive with animated conversations, such as "Maybe it's a young alien from Mars", " If we can't get it back to space, maybe we'll need to make a new one", It's got real electric wires!" What a fantastic start to the week, we can't wait to find out more! Please click here to see more photos.
