During our Forest school time we had fun making bugs out of natural materials. We made sure our insects had 3 parts. The head, the thorax and the abdomen.
During Black History month we enjoyed learning about the inspirational life of Wangari Maathai. She was a political activist who lived in Kenya. We learnt about the hardships of her early life and her passion for her country. We wrote biographies retelling the story of her life, illustrating how she inspired others to plant over a million trees to protect habitat and wildlife. You can see us below enjoying our own trees during a forest school session, taking a quiet moment to reflect on what is important to us and how we can inspire change.
