Forest School

The Year 1 children have been enjoying their forest school sessions on a Thursday afternoon. We have been exploring the outdoor areas despite the winter weather! They have been building dens, planting hazel trees and having fun getting muddy! They have also been using some different tools and learning how to do this safely, they have used a bow saw and a hammer to make weaving tree cookies! The most important bit, having a hot chocolate and biscuit at the end of the afternoon to warm themselves up!
Today (28/03/19) the children used a safety knife to make a sharp stick for toasting marshmallows. They were all very sensible when toasting their marshmallows and enjoyed eating them!
Today (14th February) the children went hunting for 'animals' and then built homes for them. They all really enjoyed themselves and made some amazing homes. They decided they wanted to leave the animals out overnight to see if they would stay dry and warm! Fingers crossed!
