Welcome to Forest School & Garden

SPRING 2018

We have been learning about different kinds of birds and animals that lay eggs and build nests.

We had a go at constructing nests ourselves.

Then we worked in groups to find some eggs hidden in the garden to fill our nests.

We counted the eggs. We needed to know if the other group was better than us!

We were all winners as we all got a sweet treat at the end!

Before Easter you could have a photo taken and help us raise funds for the food for our guinea pigs. We made £8. Thank you for your donations!

SUPER WORMS

We are learning about the importance of earthworms for our environment.

We have studied the information about the worms habitat and life cycle.

We know what important role they play to keep our garden soil healthy and fertile.

We found lots of worms in our soil. That proves how well we look after our environment.

We measured some worms to check what was the average size of worm for our garden
