Forest School birthday and holiday fun

On the last Forest School day for our Year 6 pupils last term, it happened to be one of our pupil’s birthdays, and what better way for him to spend it!  His classmates made him various gifts to ensure it will be a birthday that doesn’t get forgotten.

Our Forest School Leader, Mr Rumbold, also ran a Forest School holiday club for the first time this October, and we’re delighted to hear that it was a huge success and very popular.

War in Mighty Oaks!

Mighty Oaks have been learning about World War II this term. They have looked at the chronology of key events, the political and social implications of the war, and have compared/contrasted the effects of war on different communities. As part of their learning they have read “Rose Blanche”, a book about a group of young German citizens who protested against the war.

They’ve produced a very high quality of work, which is on display in their classroom.

A restaurant at Forest School

This week at Forest School the pupils developed their bakery from the previous week, and launched a Forest School restaurant amongst other activities!

“Baking” at Forest School

Amongst other activities, our pupils made a mud bakery at Forest School last week.

Mud, glorious mud!

Our year 6 children had a mudtastic time at Forest School last week! It was a beautiful September day for them to walk to the local woods to which we have exclusive access.

Porridge!

We are so proud of Mighty Oaks for putting on such a fantastic school production, and hope family and friends enjoyed the show.

Thank you very much for your generous donations to the World Wildlife Fund, the charity chosen by Year 6.  We raised a grand total of £100, and a cheque has been sent to them today.
