OWL School Spring Term Newsletter

 

A welcome back to the start of the Spring Term and start of 2022.  This term’s Owl School Lessons are on creating craft based items out of natural materials and using a range of art or craft techniques to create these products.

Students will start the New Year by designing their own Owl School Calendar out of reclaimed timber. Other sessions include creating a charcoal sketch of the woodland, creating their own log picture frame, making a rain gauge out of recycled plastic bottles and designing their own Valentine card or gift.

Over this Term, we are looking to develop a permanent seating area around our Owl School Fire pit area to make this zone accessible in all weathers.  We are also looking at starting a badge scheme to help motivate and note students' involvement in Owl School sessions. These badges will be awarded to pupils when they have completed a series of tasks and will be a symbol of the progress they have made in outdoor learning.

Your child probably has their own favourite coat and boots to wear for these sessions but we do have an extensive range of waterproof coats and boots available, especially if you do not want these items getting muddy.

If you do have any questions regarding Owl School sessions you can contact me via email at n.trivett@marchant-holliday.co.uk or record these queries in your students Daily Link book.

Kind Regards,

Neil Trivett - Outdoor Learning Lead
