Seahorses exploring trees

Year 2 spent the afternoon in the nature area. They enjoyed playing with the catapults and were very successful. Year 2 also recognised tree types and completed some leaf rubbings around the nature area. They also enjoyed making potions and pretend food.

Seahorses in the Nature Area

Seahorses had an enjoyable afternoon in the nature area, they made sure the birds were fed again after being off school for half-term. Some of the children built dens showing excellent construction skills whilst others demonstrated their art skills with mud faces.

Oysters exploring habitats

Oysters learnt about different habitats. We discussed evergreen and deciduous trees, also how the nature area and beach differ as habitats. We fed the birds and managed to bird watch - finding a very friendly robin who came down to say hello.

Oysters in the Nature Area

Oysters enjoyed their chilly day in the nature area. We started colour matching and using our observational skills to find the fairy doors dotted around the nature area. After this, we built our own homes for little teddies, testing whether they were waterproof and warm. Later in the day, Oysters enjoyed tasty smores - marshmallows with biscuits. We also discussed natural and man-made materials describing their features and uses.

Seahorses enjoying the Nature Area

Seahorses had a wonderful day in the Nature Area. Firstly, they enjoyed finding the fairy doors that Year 6 had designed and painted. It required them to use all their observational skills to find them as some of them were tricky and well hidden.

Moving on, they designed shelters for their teddy. They were only allowed to use natural materials found in the nature area.

After a quick break, we enjoyed, for the very first time - smores (marshmallows sandwiched in biscuits) they were delicious. They discussed what a fire needs to burn and certain safety aspects involving the fire.

Seahorses were so well behaved and had an amazing day.
