Native Americans enjoy Forest School! 28.2.20

This week, the Year 6 children who didn’t go on the Residential, became Native Americans for a few days and enjoyed exploring the Forest School area in their tribes. They had tribal tasks to complete, such as: making a headdress, creating tribal war paint designs for their faces, climbing trees, devising celebration drumming rhythms and making a 5 minute fire to boil water in a Kelly Kettle so they could have hot chololate. They also learnt how to make friendship bracelets and wrote a legend describing ‘how their tribe became’. Each task required different skills, but resilience and collaboration were needed for every task! It was lovely to see some sunshine and some children took a rest from their tasks to bask in the sun – even in a wheelbarrow!
