Welcome to our online floor book, a place to discover some of the things we have been doing at Outdoor Nursery.
(You will find the most recent week first.)
This week we have been using tools. We all listened and watched carefully and watched the 'tool talk' throughout. We have used loppers, peelers and a bow saw. We made a bow and arrows to use in our tin can alley.
This week we have been learning about birds and how to look after them. We have also been learning about hibernation, we all found this really interesting and we became engineers whilst building enclosures for the hibernating animals, we had lots of problems to solve.
This week we explored apples.
We discovered that apple trees can live to be 100 years old, did apple printing and dipped apples in melted chocolate.
Towards the end of the week we explored pumpkins, carved them, roasted pumpkin seeds and did a Halloween hunt!
It has been all about leaves this week in Outdoor Nursery. We have identified them, made flowers, made leaf man pictures, measured them, used sticks to make marks on the leaf coloured forest floor, learnt all about the 4 seasons, printed with them and made a fantastic leaf bowl.
This week in Outdoor Nursery we have been doing lots of planting in the allotment and around the forest.
We have planted a blackberry and blueberry bush, broad beans, created 2 wildflower beds, planted spring flowering bulb and discovered the different parts of a plant and what they need to grow.
We decided we would use fabric bags for our book bags to help protect the planet.
They needed a print on the front to personalise them...
