Year 4 Forest School

First term in Y3

What a great start to year 3!

The term was jam packed full of learning from poetry in English to the introduction of 3 digit numbers in maths, and everything in between.

The children are becoming more confident in Forest School with lovely reports coming from the ‘Forest In The Dip’ that the children’s independence and creativity is growing with each session. Much of their Forest School work has been linked to our Stone Age topic, not least with their super Stone Age tool creations…pics below.

We ended the term with an educational visit from a local geologist, to celebrate the science work the children have done on Rocks and Soils. It was such an exciting day, I think you can tell from the photographs that the children had a super day!

 

Year 2C – Forest School Communication

Year 2 have been super observant of our forest school environment and have guided each other around obstacles. Super communication and teamwork.

Year 3: Stone Age Forest School

Year 1 Fairytale Baking Day

Year 1 had a fantastic day creating fairy tale biscuits linked to our traditional tales theme. The children created their own three little pigs, a wolf and Red Riding Hood. They did lots of weighing and measuring and learnt how to create dough and decorate their biscuits. They will soon be ready to appear on the The Great British Bake Off!!!

Avalanche Team: Day Two

Good evening everyone,

Avalanche Team have had a brilliant day full of fun, laughter and the conquering of fears! They have shown their skills in archery, their team work in the piranha pool and perseverance on the climbing wall and trapeze. It was great to see the children filling each other with confidence and expressing how they believed in each other when facing the daunting giant swing.

They have now had their hot chocolate and have gone off to bed for the night after another cracking day.

Up-cycling Instruments

Through our work on Rosie Revere Engineer, Year 4 have been inventing their own percussion instruments using other people’s rubbish.

The results were amazing and we invited a sound engineer from Stockport Music Services in to record us playing our compositions.

Oh Solar System I stare at you all night,
With Mars, Jupiter, Mercury and more.
With your friends of other universes of many kind.
Oh Solar System you are never alone.

Stars, stars
How beautiful you are!
I reach up to you stars
And grab you in my arms
I smile at you stars
With my head held high.
Oh stars, oh stars
How lovely you are
Hanging in the  gorgeous moonlit sky.

Greave’s Green Eco-Team

Today we had our first meeting of the new year. We talked about what we needed to do in order to carry out our school environmental review.

The team split into subteams, including: recycling, litter, energy, water, school grounds and biodiversity.

Watch this space to see what the review highlights as our next steps!

 

Super Scarecrows

Year 4 worked incredibly creatively and cooperatively to make a superb scarecrow.

As we had been exploring the epic poem, Beowulf, we decided to have a Beowulf scarecrow – holding onto the arm of the hideous monster, Grendel.

UPDATE: WE WON THE CLASS SCARECROW PRIZE!
