Spider Webs

Todays challenge was to use wool to make a spider web and ask another team to get through the web without touching it!  Everyone had great fun crawling in and out of the webs. 

The story of The Green Man

Today in Forest School we listened to and talked about the story of The Green Man. We learnt about he looks after the plants, trees and wildlife in the forest. Then we looked for faces of The Green Man in the trees and used clay to make our own Green Man faces and figures. 

The RSPB Big Schools’ Bird Watch

In Forest School today we carried out the RSPB Big Schools' Bird Watch. Everyone was very excited about finding different birds and we even found a trail of soft, fluffy white feathers. We played in the hammock and played What's the time Mr Wolf?

Hot chocolate and birds nests

In Forest school this week we found lots of ice sculptures, played the icicle game, made some birds nests and warmed up with some delicious hot chocolate.
