Stop motion animations by Blackbirds

This week, we tried our hand at creating our own stop motion animations inspired by the story of Gregory Cool. Working in partners and groups of three, we designed and animated a scene inspired by the Tobagonian setting. We learned so much throughout the process that we have decided to try animation again next term […]

After a week of putting on our Magical Moments in Narnia shows with the children, it was the adults’ turn!

We knew the children would miss our end of year song with our obligatory reindeer antler headbands, so we decided to record our own version of a well known song and music video for the children.

We’re […]

Today we welcomed back the Wild Things for our final session.  We reflected on what we had learned this term about composting, sustainability and what we can do to slow down climate change.  The wild things did all their outdoor jobs such as harvesting the Jerusalem artichokes and collecting, emptying and cleaning the compost bins.

We […]

This week the Wild Things experienced much joy from the leaves.  They have been collecting, dragging, wheeling and scooping the leaves from all parts of the school to the wildlife garden.  They are putting them into the compost heap to add to the ‘browns’ component.  They have been hauling them into the leaf mould area.

Last week we learned that the temperature heats up in the compost heap when the decomposers are working effectively. We know that microorganisms in the compost help with this process.  We looked at samples of compost through microscopes today to see any evidence.

I’ve seen something wiggling

Tiny little green thing. They look […]

This week in Wild Things, we learned that after the decomposters have started to break down the greens and browns in the compost, that micro organisms are present.  They release energy which heats up the compost and the process of composting starts to accelerate.  Two of the Wild Things were mixing in the new fruit waste […]
