In Art Oak class have been working on using a range of materials creatively to make a natural sculpture, know what construction materials are and use them to assemble a structure.
Today we went to Hamsterley forest to explore natural sculptures and construct a den using natural materials.
We went on a walk to find the Gruffalo sculpture.
We then worked as a team to construct a den (with a little help).
After this we went for a walk and crossed ‘pooh stick bridge’. Oak class learnt why the bridge had the special name.
In Science we have been learning all about seasons. On our walk we spoke about how we know it is autumn time.
“leaves falling off the tree”, “Brown and yellow leaves”, “toadstools”
Finally we found a special structure that we especially found fun! Did you know you can make a whole play park out of natural materials?
We had so much fun! Not only learning about Art but developing our turn taking skills, being able to assess for dangers (tree stumps that we sometimes tripped over), physical development, observational skills and just being active.
Well done Oak class, brilliant work and behaviour. We are super proud!
