B13 (Pine) have been studying the Hydrologic Cycle and participated in a science experiment before exploring The Old Mill at Jesmond Dene.
We have recently started a parents gardening team, working at the Blythdale site. This will take place (Weather permitting) on Friday between 1-2pm. If you are interested in being part of the team please contact Tracy Henderson or James Groundwater.
We have a large garden at Blythdale and we are looking for help to maintain the grounds and make sure they are safe all year around for the children.
Thank you to – Thomas, Gemma, Natalie and Matthew for volunteering last Friday. Thanks so much for all the sawing and cutting. We really appreciate the time and effort, you are all amazing.
This week in outdoor learning we have looked at Eric Carl and his amazing art work. We read his book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We then went on to design and make our own butterfly, looking at symmetry and even made our own Eric Carl art work. In the Garden we explored insects and bugs under a microscope.
In outdoor learning we have been learning about Bees and making some Bee art. The children decided this will help raise awareness of the importance of Bees. We even used hammers and nails to create our own flower bed looking at measurements and working as a team.
In outdoor learning this week, we have been looking at how people used to live in the medi evil times. We looked at mud villages and also tried on a knights helmet. We also made a knights favourite drink, made from honey and water, a delicious treat back in the day.
This week in outdoor learning we have looked at 1940s and 1950s. We looked at how homing pigeons were used and made our own secret messages in invisible ink. We also looked at how soldiers used fire to cook beans and bread. We also couldn’t resist roasting marshmallows.
