Year 3

Posted: Sep 18, 2023 by: Tara (Tara) on: Forest Blog

It’s been a great first few weeks back for Year 3:

*Teamwork and laughter

*Exploring natural treasures and developing descriptive language

*Games to develop collaboration, co-ordination and trust

*Enjoying books and reading for inspiration and explanation

*Visiting our chickens and finding a toad

*Maintaining our grounds, learning to use loppers, shears and secateurs safely

*Harvesting tomatoes and preparing the allotment beds, ready for manure

*Planning and starting woodworking projects

Connie: The snail trail looks like stardust!

Lois: We found a toad!

Isabelle: It was a common toad because it had orange eyes and warty skin.

Evie: I enjoyed using the loppers and shears to cut back all the stinging nettles and stuff.

LJ: I liked using the rake to level the soil in the allotment beds.

Teddy: We picked the good tomatoes and took out the rotten ones. We worked as a team.

Spiridon: The female pincers of an earwig are straight.

Alfie: The male are curved.
