It has been a glorious day for a Woodland School session. Our nature area has transformed into a verdant glade. Today we learnt about campion leaves being used as a soap substitute - they will froth up apparently if you rub them like soap. We also learnt about the benefits of dandelions, every part of them being edible even if the leaves are a bit bitter. Perhaps you would like to try making some freshly ground coffee from the roots! Just dig them up, scrub them off, roast them in the oven or under the grill and then grind - delicious and your kitchen will smell wonderful.
Today's mystery animal was a stoat and we were able to feel a stoat pelt. Then, the scavenging task was to find bits and pieces to create images of animals. Can you see what they are?
We have finished our information about highwaymen and shall be assembling our information pages next week.
In Maths, we will be concentrating on using mathematical skills to solve problems and this past week, the children were given 12cm squares of paper as their only measuring tool to calculate the dimensions of their desks.
The weaving is beginning to take shape. We are learning a few different techniques as we go and the blue/green colour palette is really rich. They're doing a good job.
Have a super weekend (hopefully in the sunshine)
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
