This afternoon Year 6 came to visit Forest School as part of their Science lesson with Mrs DeBoard. The task was to identify as many different types of flora and fauna as possible on the field and in the school woodland.
Paddington class were able to offer their help as experienced Forest School students. It was wonderful to see the Year 1 children lead the way, showing Year 6 where to look, and how to identify things using the charts.
They all worked together, side by side, exploring the field and woodland, and coming across many new findings. Such as, 4 different types of fungi, seeds, bulbs, animal prints in the mud, empty birds nests, ivy, catkins, berries, and many different types of leaves which the Year 6 children have taken photos of to examine more closely back in the classroom.
We all had such a brilliant afternoon of teamwork and exploration.
Thank you Year 6 and Paddington class!
