Days gone by at Forestdale
A day in politics at Forestdale
In the build up to the General Election, students were keen to learn about politics and understand the big decision that British citizens will have to make. Students began the day in the Forestdale House of Commons, where they learnt about who sits where and explored the roles of different politicians. Back in class, students got into groups and established their political party names, colours and logos. They took part in a political debate, which really tested their Listening Carefully and Sharing Ideas skills, before writing their manifestos. The day came to a close with students Working in Teams to deliver their party political broadcasts.
Trip to London
On Friday 8th May 2015 we came to school dressed in 1940's fashion to celebrate the 70th anniversary of World War 2 ending for Europe.
In the morning the children spent time investigating how VE day was celebrated and in the afternoon the children took part in a 1940's style street party and activities.

Happy 10th Birthday Forestdale!
We started the day with fun activities in class, finding out facts about different topics from 10 years ago.
At 11:30 the whole school went outside for a game of pass the parcel, except there were 10 parcels going round at the same time!
Music was provided by an impromptu staff band!
Everyone then sang Happy Birthday.
Following the game of pass the parcel the whole school had a picnic. Tables were laden with food and the rooms decorated with bunting.
This was followed by a disco!
