Tidying up the school environment
Saving the world one playground at a time! This afternoon, Herons Class and Swans class went out into the school grounds to clean up the environment. In 20 minutes, we collected a big bag of rubbish - mainly plastics - from around the playground and forest school area. The children were really observant, noticing even the smallest pieces of litter. Well done everyone!
In Herons Class, we have been creating our own comic strips. We have planned out our stories collaboratively, which had to be linked to the rainforest. Then we used "Storyframethat" to bring our comics to life! We have had to drag and drop backgrounds, characters and other objects into each frame; rotate and resize objects accordingly; and add text boxes and speech bubbles. Many of the children also learned about why it is important to save your work regularly! During our lessons, we have also discussed the importance of logging off when you have been using things such as apps, email or programs such as Seesaw.
Herons Class have been taking part in Forest School with Mrs. Harding on a Monday afternoon. This term our learning has been focused around the theme of "Play" which links with our playground development. We have been developing some ideas about ways to use our outdoor space whilst enjoying the mud and fresh air!
