Welcome to Forest School, My name is Mrs Davies and I’m the Forest School Leader. Forest school is outdoor education in which children get to experience the outdoors learning, personal, social and technical skills. It is a unique way of building independence and self-esteem in young children.
At Forest school we gather around the fire pit and discuss rules and activities of the session. After our activities we return to the fire circle to have a drink and a snack, sometimes toasting marshmallows or making pizzas on our fire. We’ve also made bread and soup on our Forest School fire pit.
This year we have had lots of fun during our sessions. In reception and nursery we have been making giant chairs for the 3 bears and mixing porridge oats in small, medium and big bowls. In year 1 we looked for worms and made a worm hotel. In year 2 we made a marvellous medicine, using a pestle and mortar and mixing our ingredients in a large pan just like George. In year 3 and 4 we made Tudor knots with clay and made mini catapults using lolly sticks and elastic bands. In years 5 and 6 we collected resources to make natural patterns.
Other activities we do during Forest school are bug hunting, den building, treasure hunts, making assault courses, team building games, using tools and many many more.
