A Great Day in Forest School

The weather was kind to us when we spent the morning in Forest school on Wednesday. As part of our English and History topic the children worked in groups to build a Stone Age house. I was so impressed that they were all very different! Some were built from clay and stones, some from wood and grass. We had near life size houses and mini replicas with stone and clay furniture. The children had to present their houses to the rest of the class and talk about what their best features were.

In art we had a go at dying material using natural dyes such as brambles, blueberries and spinach and used elastic bands to make a tie dye effect.
