Forest Club Hedgehogs

This week we talked about hedgehogs and the children either made hedgehogs out of leaves or mud.
They also discovered lots of fungi and remembered the names from last week.

Year 4 learning to row together like the Vikings

The children attempted to row in unison. Sadly we had to improvise because of the weather so instead of using sticks in the forest, we used hockey sticks in the classroom.
We also made supports for our oars.

Year 6 gears and cogs

The children looked at pictures of a Penny Farthing bike and compared the mechanisms with a bike we had in class. We discussed how gears and cogs work to turn the wheels then had a go at making our own.
