Busy Forest School Time

Year1 have been extrememly busy in their forest school session this week.  Making fairy houses, bird feeders, using tools safely and playing the follow the leader game.  Some children were very brave and really enjoyed climbing the trees.  Well done everyone!


Forest School Games

Year 1 played lots of new games in forest school this week.  We used our senses to play the owl and mice game and used our dodging skills to play farmer, farmer and wood, wood, fire.


Making bows, arrows and bird feeders.

Year 3 enjoyed making bows and arrows using tools safely to cut branches from the willow and practice their knot tying skills.  They also made bird feeders and used their senses to play the owl and mice game.  The children enjoyed investigating the ice and warmed themselves up with some delicious hot chocolate.


Fabulous bird feeders

The children had a great time in forest school. We talked about different types of birds, what they eat and what they sound like. Then we made two different types of bird feeders, played the sparrow hawk game and enjoyed making soup in the mud kitchen. Well done everyone! 


Making pizza wraps

Year 2 really enjoyed making their own pizza wraps, making soup in the mud kitchen and making homes for different characters.


Forest School fun with Year 5

Year 5 have been practising their knot tying skills by making fantastic bows and arrows. They also had great fun playng their favourite game - Forest Ranger and using berries to make natural dyes.  The group were so happy when they saw a beautiful rainbow and wanted a picture under the rainbow!
