Year 4

Posted: Oct 2, 2022 by: Tara (Tara) on: Forest Blog

Such a wonderful session with Year 4 today.

Badges this term are: conservation, campsite cooking and advanced gardener and the class science link is Living Things and Their Habitats.

Today we explored all our different habitats and we will be classifying animals, taking a trip to local woodland to make shelters and creating a book about British Trees, including photos, uses, facts, folklore, leaf and bark rubbings.

The children also directed their own learning and were very absorbed.

“I got some sticks off the floor to make his hair and I put a rubber band to help his arms stay.” (Freya)

 “I’ve made a monster and used different leaves for his hair.” (Jessie)

“I’m making perfume and have used yarrow, cornflower and lemon balm.” (Romi)

“I’m making a bug hotel and I’ve made different layers. At the bottom I put wood and then I put some sandy mud and some damp mud. Then I decorated the top with berries and carrots.” (Eden)

“Look! I’ve printed different leaves into the clay.” (Jessie)
