Autumn Term 2021

The Enchanted Wood

For our super start into our topic 'The Enchanted Wood', we had a fun day exploring our forest school. We looked for signs of Autumn. We found conkers, hazelnuts and a bird's nest which even had a bird sat in it. We tasted juicy plums, blackberries and even made an Eckington forest school crumble. It was yummy!  Using a mortar and pestle made from natural materials, we crushed sloe berries and elderberries to make a paste. We used this paste to write. 

We had fun in the forest! 

Our adventure to Puzzlewood

Puzzlewood is an enchanting, ancient woodland, filled with fantastic tree and rock formations.

 It is located in Gloucestershire’s gorgeous and historic Forest of Dean. From aliens to ancient Scowles and wizards to wildlife our unique and atmospheric ancient woodland is a natural stage that’s more than a home to history and nature, it’s an inspiration for authors and storytellers, where Stormtroopers and Time Lords have rubbed shoulders with dragons and unicorns.

We had a fantastic day exploring the ancient woodland and searching for minibeasts.

Creating animations 

The children have had lots of fun learning about and using the Chatterpix Kids app to create some great animated character videos.
