Forest Schools at Lawfield

‘ We went on the minibus regularly to Straiton where we went to the forest.  When we were there we climbed trees and found a muddy slope that we could slide down. 

It was all made really cool by roasting marshmallows on an open fire. We all got turns each to light the fire.

We also made swings with rope and whittled wood to make bows and arrows, using the left overs for the fire.  

Forest schools is fun that gives you a chance to do something new that you don’t usually get to do.  I got to make fireside toast.  I don’t usually get to do that.  It makes learning different and lots of fun.  I got on with people I didn’t think I could.’

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

We have enjoyed using word searches to help us with our spelling!

We wrote about why we may need to see the dentist after visiting the chocolate factory!

We made our own Golden Tickets before ‘visiting our chocolate factory!

Playing in the river of chocolate !

We have all been working very hard! Willy Wonka was impressed!
