Year 3 learn about soil at Forest School

This term at Forest School, Year 3 have been learning about soil. We found out about which soil lets water get through to the plants so they can grow. Sandy soil is made out of rocks that have rubbed together and lets more water through than clay soil.

Joel and Mylo reflect on their learning:
"As well as being educated on soils we also had fun. We made fires, toasted bread and marshmalllows, made mud balls, a tent and a swing. Forest school is really fun when we play eagle eyes. We had to wear waterproof clothes because it was very cold and wet this term. Thanks Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Mawanda for Forest School. We can't wait until next year."

Boys and parents: If you have not already filled out our Forest School Questionnaire, please do so...we would love to hear what you think. We will be publishing the results next term when we celebrate five years of Forest School at Elmhurst! Click here to complete the questionnaire. 

Thank you,

Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Mawanda
