Y5 School Linking with Cale Green School

Year 5 have had a tremendous experience linking with Cale Green School this year. In June, Cale Green paid us a visit and were treated to a series of adventures in Forest School. The children of Mellor School were proud to show off the fantastic facilities we have and enjoyed meeting up with familiar faces. This initiative has given Year 5 wonderful opportunities to meet with children from different backgrounds and cultures, and they have enjoyed comparing many similarities as well as differences. It has been marvellous to see our children shine whilst thoroughly enjoying themselves. 

Sports Day 2019

We were very lucky with the weather this year for Sports Day.

Forest Schools 2018/19

Each year group in school, from Nursery to Year 6, enjoy forest school in the beautiful woodlands surrounding Mellor Primary during different seasons of the year.

Forest School is an experiential method of learning in which children can initiate their own learning and continually develop their relationship with the natural world around them.  They take managed risks appropriate to themselves and their surroundings and are able to develop their resilience, self-confidence, creativity and independence through these experiences. 

Forest school activities include learning to identify the flora and fauna in our surroundings and how we can assist the eco-systems that exist here, managing and conserving our forest, building shelters from natural materials and tarpaulins, creating artwork from natural materials, using tools for projects,  lighting and managing fires for campfire cookery and playing lots of fun outdoor games.

We welcome the local community to take part in seasonal events at Forest School such as Wizard School, Shelter and Sparks, Festive Forest and Easter Eggs-travaganza and have a thriving toddler group named Treetots which takes place every Friday morning during term time.

Our Forest School is also available for other schools to utilise and we work with visiting schools to plan and facilitate sessions aimed at the particular needs of their pupils and enable them to make the most of our extensive outdoor setting.

All Forest School sessions are led by our trained forest school practitioner and take place outside in all weathers.

Year 6 Tribute to the Great War

Our Year 6 children have put together a fitting tribute to the men of the Great War for Rememberance Day. Each child made 4 clay petals, fired and glazed them and attached leaves with the names of the 30 Mellor men who perished in the Great War.

Wizard School

Lots of children took part in our recent Wizard School here at Forest School.  The children passed potions class with flying colours, making potions to make them turn into dragons, grow wings, turn pink and many more, all with some very imaginative potion names.  

They learned about what ancient people believed about the different powers certain trees possess and whittled sticks and tied knots to create magical wands and broomsticks.

To finish we made some tasty toffee apples and spiced apple punch around the campfire cauldron.

The children enjoyed a beautiful walk to and from Mellor Church to celebrate our ‘Harvest Festival’.
