Beeches busy morning

A lovely morning for Beeches class today, using our Percy the park keeper story to inspire us out in Forest School. We started off learning about oak trees-the same tree that Percy found had blown down in the storm. We found lots of Oaks as we walked to the  log circle, and enjoyed looking for and collecting acorns.

We enjoyed looking closely at the acorns using magnifying glasses, and all found our own acorn to plant…

We hope that our acorns start to grow, so that we can plant some new oak trees

We also did a few jobs that Percy the park keeper does in his woodland-raking leaves and carrying things around in the wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow was very wobbly, and took a lot of concentration to push!

And we had a go at creating pictures of some of the story characters, using natural resources…

During our reflection time at the end of our morning, we thought about what we were good at doing today.  Answers including I was good at…’helping my friend’, ‘raking leaves’, ‘pushing the wheelbarrow’ ‘making pictures’, ‘looking for acorns’. Lots of sensible and individual answers…we were very impressed.
