Y2 Forest School

Lesson: Science

Class: Year 2 Year: 2021 - 2022

Today Year 2 enjoyed a day of Forest school with Mr Hadfield. Luckily, the sun was shining! 

We started by looking at a range of interesting objects that Mr Hadfield had brought to show us including herbivore and carnivore skulls and different birds' nests. We listened to see if we could identify some of the birdsong in our school grounds and watched a magpie flying to and from its nest at the top of one of the trees in our school grounds.

Next we worked together to make a  'boy size' shelter using natural materials and in small groups we made 'homes' for a range of superheroes and toy figures. There were even tennis courts and hot tubs included!

Using a dragons sneeze we burned materials such as teabags and cotton wool but one of our favourite activities was toasting marshmallows by the fire pit - delicious!

Mr Hadfield finished off the day by reading the book 'The King of Tiny Things' and then we went  hunting for minibeasts. We found slugs, ladybirds, woodlice and plenty of worms! 

We all had a fantastic day learning more about our school grounds!
