P4 Forest School - Week 9

This week's Forest School task was for the children to create a picture from a favourite movie. The children worked in pairs or small groups and had to come up with a scene from a movie that they all had seen. The children all worked really well together and some of the creations were marvellous.

P4 Forest School - Week 8

Today in Forest School, Primary 4 worked in groups to create a biblical scene from one of the bible lessons they've learnt this year. As a group they had to decide on the scene they wanted to create and then work together to create it. Each group had an opportunity to talk about their piece of work.

P4 Forest School - Week 5

This week in Forest School the P4s were learning about area. Each pupil was given a leaf and had to decide on something to cover it's surface with. After some discussion, the pupils were then given cubes (standard unit) to make the measuring of the leaf's surface area easier. 

The next challenge was for the children to cover the surface of a larger space with items they found around them. Some groups then used string or sticks to create their own squares for counting.

P4 Forest School - Week 4

This week in Forest School, the boys and girls worked in groups and pairs to create a seasonal tree, made from pine cones, sticks, flowers and bark etc.

One of our WAU topics that also links in with PDMU that we have covered is ‘Me I’m Unique’ and we discussed how we are like trees in many ways. We are planted on earth, have roots that connect us to an area, we need things to help us grow and as we grow we blossom. We discover things we like and don’t like and we gain lots of experiences. What makes us unique is that we are all different just like trees and we have our own individual talents that we are gifted with.
