Maths Week – Guess the Pumpkin Weight!

Our committee harvested our pumpkins today and have set up a Maths Week challenge!
Pumpkins are being set up under the yellow stairs. You can bring your class or a few kids to guess the weight over the next week (we’ll leave it out until this day next week). Closest guess gets to take home the pumpkin! Forest school kids will be weighing next Thursday.
The pumpkins are named by their current class. eg. last year’s rowan class pumpkin is labelled as beech class.
Kilo bags of sugar are put down there as a reference to assist pupils in their estimated!

21st September 2018

Our Forest School and School Garden Committee had completed their first harvest today – of the fruit and vegetables in our Geodome.  Committee members delivered a range of fruit and veg to all classes to give them a taste!
