In English, we are using two books by Lynne Cherry to inspire our writing. Both are set in the Amazon rainforest and explore the importance of preserving this unique environment. We have been writing persuasive letters and will be writing our own rainforest stories soon.
We have wrapped up and braved the cold weather to continue with our Forest School sessions. We have created a trading system between our different 'tribes' and are making our own products to sell. Some children demonstrated their learning power of resilience and managed to get a fire going despite the cold, damp conditions!

15.1.19 This week in Forest School, we played some trust games to help develop our team work and we continued building our dens.
In English, we made word class board games to help learn the difference between nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. The Year 3 children joined us to play our games!
Happy New Year!
We have started 2019 off with a sunny trip to Yew Tree Farm woodlands as part of Forest School with Carrie Roet. The children built their own dens in teams and showed great team-building skills.
