Forest School

Well done to all Year 2 children that took part in our Forest School session today. It was a challenge finding dry fuel in our fire but the children were an absolute credit and worked well as a team to ensure we enjoyed a healthy treat at the end of the session.

Forest School

We had a fabulous Forest School session playing lots of recall games to develop our listening skills and the children thought of lots of interesting rules for our Forest School to ensure that we stay safe and have lots of fun!

Forest School Fun!

We used a Timber Hitch knot and Taut-line Hitch knot to tie the rope to the tree (using instructions to help us!). Some pupils used a knife to make our own tent pegs, and others then built the shelter! Great team-work! Given the weather we needed the shelter and out waterproofs, not that the pupils cared- as demonstrated by their faces at the end of the session!

Great work by all the year 3 children that attended our Forest School session today. It was a challenge finding dry fuel for our fire, but the children were an absolute credit and worked well as a team to ensure we had a healthy treat at the end of the session. Da iawn!

The children have been fantastic using tools to make wooden necklaces.

Home-made charcoal!

We couldn’t believe how easy it was to make charcoal! We were keen to get drawing with it the next day!

Forest School - fires!

Toni and Hels from Branching Out visited us again, this time we were lighting fires. All children showed great perseverance in trying to get the fires started. Despite it being June we all appreciated the warmth from the fires and even more than that, we loved the toasted marshmallows! We also made our own charcoal which we are excited to create some art work with!
