Head’s Blog – 18th June 2021
We have been able to continue our local adventures during the pandemic, this week in Oak we learnt about the importance of bees, took some time on our Welly walk to be mindful (listening to the bees and birds) and also built some bug homes. The children are so creative and they really enjoy being able to make use of our school garden.
We have also ventured out of the Forest to have an adventure and Oak class have been to Bristol Zoo. It was fabulous to be able to inspire our children as well as educate them about animals and their habitats. We also got a surprise lesson when the reptiles were being fed live crickets – the food chain in action! The duck was very cheeky and stole some sandwiches from us. Thank you to Mrs Griffiths for organising this trip and for providing lots of scientific information about habitats. Going on a trip always provides so many learning opportunities which is why we value them so much at Clearwell and the trips are part of our educational vision.
One of much loved adventures is Young Voices, like so many other events this was cancelled due to COVID. However, Young Voices invited all schools who usually attend the chance to take part in an online sing-song. We are never ones to turn down opportunities so our small but divine choir took part and had a great afternoon.
