Bovey Tracey Primary School

Nature School

Brimley had a fantastic final day at Nature School in Parke woods today - and again we had lovely sunshine and no rain! We made bracelets and window ornaments out of nettles (and didn't get stung!); found different minibeasts and insects and looked at them carefully before putting them back; built dens and became tree detectives, using the shape of leaves to work out which tree were there. As ever, a huge thank you to all the adults who have made this possible. We look forward to a Nature School session next week on and around our school field area.

Brimley had their second visit to Nature School today. They were super quick and resilient, walking up there briskly to make the most of every minute. Again we had perfect weather and during the morning made (and ate!) bread rolls cooked on the campfire, read stories beneath the canopy of leaves amidst the birdsong, made clay face sculptures, or 'boggarts' which we put on the trees, and painted beautiful symmetrical butterflies. Thank you again to all our helpers!

Brimley at Nature School - 29th April 2022. We were so delighted to be back at Nature School today. The weather was perfect and everyone had an amazing time. A huge thank you to all the grown ups who enabled it to happen. We can't wait for next week! This week we made fire, 3D maps, our special badges and did a scavenger hunt.

We are delighted that we will be able to start Nature School again shortly for Year 1 and 2 children. We are looking for volunteer parents and carers who can support our sessions. Please speak to Phase 1 or the office team if you can help. 

We were blessed with sunshine at nature school this week. The children had the opportunity to create their own stick people using plasticine and small sticks. They got really creative and made a wide range of different creatures too including spiders and earwigs, inspired by some of our discoveries in the store cupboard!

Reception had a wonderful time exploring our new nature school area. We all went home with muddy faces and great big smiles!
