Forest School - Term 4 (2022)
Our Forest School learning this term.
The Three Little Pigs (Year 1)
This term, we have been learning the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We have acted out the story, created a hinge to trap the wolf and tested which material would make the best roof for the little pigs house. We also looked at Native American wolf masks and created our own!
What do buildings need? (Year 1)
Our question for this term is 'What do buildings need?'. We had a builder come to Koala class and we were able to ask questions, as well as see how all the tools work.
Making Sandwiches for our Teddy Bear Picnic
We made our sandwiches for our picnic. Once again, the Koala's worked so hard and I've never had the classroom as quiet as it was once they were eating their sandwiches haha!
Koala quotes: 'This is the best sandwich I've ever had'
'How can I save this last bite for the rest of my life'
Making Puppets (Year 1)
We started our morning off today by making our teddy bear puppets! The Koala's worked so hard on these

Something Fishy Going On! (Fledglings)

Diving Under the Sea! (Fledglings)
Fledglings have taken a deep breath this week and dived under the sea! We now know that some animals have gills and can breath under water. Some have blow holes and just hold their breath. We’ve loved watching octopus move, and also learned about them squirting ink when they are scared. Check out…
Man on the Moon (Fledglings)
“5, 4, 3, 2, 1...BLAST OFF!”
