Year 3 investigate inside a tree

What’s inside a tree?

Class 3 had a lovely walk to Wollaton park and explored inside a tree. We were amazed to find it still alive and growing. To celebrate we made grass trumpets.

Year 3 build dens at Forest Schools

Year 3 had a lovely time den building in their Forest School session this week. We were given a tarp and some rope and had to design and build them all ourselves.

We came up with lots of different designs using various things we found in the playground.

We successfully built dens that would house 5 people and none of us got wet!

Lunchtime Allotment Club

Lunchtime Allotment Club started this week. We are clearing the ground and getting ready to build our raised beds and plant a range of autumn winter vegetables for us to eat

Year 5 – 51 things to do before we’re 11¾

Class 5 went to Wollaton Park on Friday to build homes for wild animals – one of our 51 things to do before we’re 11¾!

Year 3 pond dipping

Class 3 had a fantastic afternoon pond dipping.  They found tadpoles, dragonfly larvae and water snails! Just wait until the pond is fully complete with pond dipping stations!

Capital One help our Green Team!

Where has our allotment gone?! So many thanks to an amazing team from Capital One UK who enthusiastically razed our existing allotment with rotting beds, ready for our children to plan and help rebuild a new model.

Forest School

This week at Forest School we have been planting yet more trees. After planting some hedgerow at the southern end of the playground we have started a little copse by the willows. We have planted some beautiful Dogwood, hazel and silver birch.
