The Key Stage 2 children, who were in school today, enjoyed a lovely sunny day at Forest School. We welcomed our Year 3 children who haven’t experienced Forest School before and they very soon became experts!
We started with a scavenge hunt with two teams searching for corks and pine cones. After a welcome drink of hot chocolate, the children then whittled hazel sticks and made mini fires with a flint and steel. Meanwhile, others searched for mini beasts and enjoyed playing and exploring in the woods. Spring is definitely on it’s way and our Forest School area is looking so pretty with primroses and daffodils springing up everywhere.
In the afternoon, the children learnt how to build a fire and we used our whittled sticks to cook marshmallows on the fire to make smores. They were very sticky but delicious!
