Welcome to the Forest School Blog
Our Forest Schoolers have been channeling their inner photographers this week and have managed to take some magnificent pictures of our surrounding natural landscape. Some of these have had a small amount of editing but all pictures were solely taken by our Year 5 children.
During Forest School in Year 5, we have been looking at the different types of animals we might find around our allotment area and which of these are good or bad to have there. With all these animals, we then had to create a food web to show what eats what. It’s hard to make out, but the sticks, logs
In our final session of a large Forest School block, the year 6 children reflected on the skills they’ve learned and enjoyed cooking bananas and chocolate within the open fire. Although it was messy, we enjoyed keeping warm and talked about our favourite bits from our Forest School sessions previously.
Our skills academy children in Forest Schools showed excellent teamwork this week in tidying the dome and getting it ready for the winter months. Keeping on top of this is crucial in allowing us to continue a good plant turnover.
In Skills Academy, the children have been safely using peelers to carve out their own wands. They then chose to decorate them with either; colours or by carving intricate designs into the handles.
A new group for Forest School this half term. We split into opposing tribes and tried to create the most sturdy structure using the large branches. Then we lined up against the enemies structure and tried to knock them down (safely) using smaller sticks as missiles. We had lots of fun and both towers survived!
We dodged the rain and had a toasted marshmallow. Children shared jokes and songs by the fire. It was a lovely way to end our forest school sessions!
