This week the children got a real taste of wartime rationing. The 'Little Chefs' had to queue up and use the Ration Books they made during the topic lesson to buy salad vegetables – being limited to the amount they could choose. The children took pride in carefully washing their vegetables, which they ate in a pitta-bread.

 

Doing their bit for the war effort, the children have been planting seeds which they will nurture over the next few weeks and they are looking forward to a good crop!

Wednesday marked the last session of Forest School for the children of Oakmere. In their final session the children made a road by clearing debris in the forest, working well as team through both communication and delegation to line the track with logs. The children made their own tools using items found in the forest and even made their own car park! A fever of excitement rose through the children as they explored the different marks on the logs and told stories of how the marks were made!

The children went on their very own treasure hunt, finding things of natural beauty and continued their knot tying – finally making a hammock in which they took turns to lie in and experience the rocking sensation.

Alongside this excitement, there was music making, hide and seek and also tree climbing with Jude, our Forest School leader.

Oakmere would like to say a big thank you to Jude for this unforgettable experience.
