Reception have had a lush morning on the field. We have been moving in different ways, hula hooping, using bean bags to throw and catch and even making bird's nests with grass cuttings. Got to make the most of a beautiful day! ☀️#dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc

A lovely sunny ‘woodensday’ for the reception children this week. Lots of new things growing to explore, so many bugs and mini-beasts. Most interestingly the morning group found an owl pellet*. Some of our children thoroughly enjoyed talking about the things that owls like to eat!
In the afternoon we found a worm in need of rescue, and the boys and girls were very focussed on trying the help this worm in distress!

Anyone who mistakenly thought owl pellets might be food to leave out for hungry passing owls is not alone...

The woods visits today were certainly very different weather wise! We had sunshine and crisp air this morning, then rain and damp this afternoon. The children had an amazing day, it was one of two of the most focussed sessions we have had this year. The children are really comfortable in the environment and are noticing things they hadn’t before and looking for changes in the things they notice every visit. Today some children had the chance to use tools to trim some exceptionally long branches and twigs to make them suit what we wanted to play with a little better, we explored holes and made predications about what lived there. We compared ‘naked’ trees with ones with leaves and thought about what we might see after the holidays. We measured leaves and collected some to take back to school to make pictures and share with our grown ups. We also found a snail this afternoon. The snail was hidden in tree roots but the children were desperate to explore it. They carried it carefully to a wetter area, examined it closely, Collected food for it, washed it, talked to it and showed genuine care and interest. Obviously it was a very sleepy slug (or maybe a little shy) as it was happy to wriggle in its shell but it didn’t want to say hello. The children loved this today, so as the weather gets nicer (🤞) encourage them to explore the minibeasts in the garden.
Here is a link to some snail facts you can share with the boys and girls, or read first and pretend you are a snail expert!

We had an amazing time in the woods today, climbing, exploring, bug hunting and some of us got to explore the burn! Also we had a pretty amazing find. We were hunting for minibeasts under logs and we found something pretty unusual. It looked like a fungus but it moved! The children were very brave as they explored it, trying to work out if it was actually alive. It was curled up on a leaf so we had a good look with a magnifying glass. (Obviously I hid behind my iPad taking photos and asking questions). After a while we couldn’t work out what it was so we asked Zoe and Cath. They weren’t totally sure so said they would get back to us after lunch. It turns out we found Newzealand Flatworms, which are a rather revolting type of worm! We are going to find out a bit more about these before we go back to the woods as apparently they like to eat the earth worms we like to dig for! #denbighexplorers #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc #dcpsstem

Here are a few pictures from our trips to the woods over the last few weeks. We are noticing so many signs of spring when were are exploring so fingers crossed the cold weather is going to be a distant memory soon! #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc

What better way is there to spend a rainy day than jumping in muddy puddles! And boy did they jump!
The Nursery children worked together to make a den that even Bear Grylls himself would be proud of as well as found the time to go fishing and make tea by the campfire. We had such good fun exploring the forest with our binoculars and cannot wait to go back. #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

The children had such fun in the snow this week at forest school. We explored the woods looking for the first signs of spring as we saw the flowers starting to grow and could hear the birds singing in the forest. We even noticed footprints in the snow belonging to the birds and rabbits and followed our friends footprints to find them.We loved running in the snow and rolling down the hill as well as making snow angels, snowmen and snow bugs. We practising our hand-eye coordination as we threw snowballs at a target on the wall and even did some painting in the snow. We had such a fun and busy day we can't wait for next week #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc #dcpsstem

Last week the nursery boys and girls had a great time going on a bug hunt around the forest to see what mini-beasts they could find using their magnifying glasses. The children also loved looking for the biggest sticks that they could find to build a house for our forest school teddy bear. We even climbed some steep steps and found different ways to get back down safely.#dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

This weeks STEM learning in year 3 is all about plants. We braved the snow and became leaf investigators! We collected and sorted the leaves using different criteria. We then learned about how leaves help the plant to make it’s own food through photosynthesis. Miss Rogers #dcpsyear3 #dcpsturtles #dcpslizard #dcpsLOTC
