We will be taking part in forest school sessions every Thursday.
Children are to come into school in their Forest School kit on the day they are doing Forest along with their school black trainers in a bag to change into. Can you please make sure that your child is wearing a long sleeved top and pants that cover the whole of their legs. For footwear children can wear wellies or an old pair of trainers. Please remember that children must wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
Forest School Fun
For our final Autumn 1 Forest School session, we were given the opportunity to toast our very own marshmallows... and even eat them! Mmmmmm :P As a team, we used our fire making skills to light and maintain a flame so that each one of us could toast our marshmallows. When we had finished eating them, we had time to scavenge and craft.
As a team, we had an orienteering task to find the name and number of an alien, remember it and tick it off a list as quickly as possible. Then, we were asked to find 11 yellow cones hidden around the area, labelled with the names of different countries, and to mark them on a map of Forest School.
In Forest School, we were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to use bow saws to create a piece of memorabilia.
