P4/5’s Final Forest Schoolday

P4/5 had a fun final forest school day at Corstorphine.

We did a halloween spider’s web challenge and then crafted our own flying broomsticks!

We also looked back over our forest time and how the forest changed. See the below sway link.

Waterproofs were well used this week! Everyone made Kavi and Mugil feel very special on their birthday. We also worked well as a class to make a spiders web and had great fun trying to cross it.

P5/4 Better Den Builders than Bear Grylls


Our challenge this week at forest Schools was to work as a team and build dens to keep us dry.

P5/4 did such a good job that the Primary 4 class used the shelters to eat their lunch in during a particularly heavy downpour before their lesson! Well done to everyone for working well together!

Also a special mention must go to Murtada’s amazing knot skills! All those below are his work. Well done Murtada!

P4 #MathsWeekScot Nature Numbers

Forest Schools carried on for our fours this week, but with a Maths week Scotland flavour.

Twig compasses were built and every kind of maths was found amongst the trees. We saw twig sums, spot counting leaves and lots of lovely numbers.

P4/5 Maths in the Wild #MathsWeekScot

P4/5 went down to the woods for Maths Week Scotland.

They found lots of maths when we sent them on the maths hunt amongst the trees.

There was leaf symmetry, twig counting, twig sums, branch weight and mass, tree ring age counting, and counting spots on leaves.

After the hunt we built number tic tac toe games by making 5 twig bundles to build numbers 1-9.
