This year the children will be participating in weekly Squirrel School sessions. In each session the children will be developing their characteristics of effective learning; Playing and exploring, Active learning, Creating and thinking critically
The children will work in groups alongside an adult each session. They will work with their group for three weeks, developing their ideas each week and sharing their mini projects with the whole class in the fourth week.
The artists will work alongside our Atelierista, Jo, who will guide the children to develop their artistic expression and techniques.
The Story Tellers
The children will work alongside Amy, developing a community of listening and sharing ideas.
The children will work alongside their Class teacher, exploring the outside world and developing their tool skills, bush craft, and scientific exploration.
The whole class came together in our fourth week to share the work that they have been doing in their groups with the rest of the class. The Story Tellers went first and told their story all about the witch who lives over at Squirrel School. The Artists then went on to share their art project using natural materials such as the fallen Autumn leaves and sticks. The Explorers shared a meal of tomato soup with bread, they cooked their meal over a fire that they had built and lit themselves and used tools that they had whittled and sawed to size in previous weeks.
Overall School: 95% - Every day counts!
