Year 5 ABC with Mr Mather
All children in Year 5 have been working with Mr Mather on the ABC - where they are taught about using their resilience to make the right choices in real life situations, life knife crime, stealing etc. ABC is a 7 week program and our children really enjoy it.
This week we have been delighted to have our children back after lockdown. Our children have been in our Bushcraft and Allotments and Edible Garden areas working on their mental wellbeing and many Life Skills including: social and emotional, speaking and listening, negotiation, understanding, empathy, creativity and imagination, respect, responsibility, safety, etc - the list is endless.
During their time in these areas they have worked with tools and been responsible for their own safety and that of others, whilst in the Allotment and Edible Garden. Making pictures about something that means a lot to them, using loose parts. Creating small dens for animals we may find in our woodlands, ie. bugs, hares, etc. Using clay and loose parts to make Guardians for our trees to keep away the goblins. Exploring, making games and dens. Making pictures using stones as a hammer to transfer the colours from leaves, flowers, berries, etc onto cotton material. Finding ingredients to make witches potions. Using willow rods and wool to weave shields.
