In the session outside year two discovered fire for themselves. They cooked potatoes and created drawings with charcoal from the fire. Special thanks to Max, the schools own Forest School’s educator, for his amazing story telling. We look forward to having him work with us in London.
Year one mixed up soil and planted the first of the three baskets. They learnt about how 10,000 years ago excessive hunting created a food crisis. However in times of crises the universe gets creative and miraculously all around the planet at about the same time human beings learnt to grow food.
To help the children focus and also experience the silence of the universe we introduced an exercise we call sitting still to each of the year groups. This also included year one and two who inspired us with their ability to sit in silence and stillness for nearly two minutes.
The time line in the hall came to life in the afternoon as each of the teachers brought wonderful art work produced in their classrooms. We also created a second time line around the school grounds, in preparation for the parent’s event the next day
