Forest School Week 4
The children had a great time today in Forest School. Luckily for us the day remained clear and dry allowing us to complete all of our activities. We began by identifying the risks in the area with the red flags. By doing this the children were alerting their friends to any possible dangers. These tend to be: stinging nettles, fox poo, thorns, pot holes or uneven ground.
The children were very excited to be able to make their pancakes over the fire again. They were all very respectful of the rules of camp and sensibly followed instructions when cooking their pancakes. This time they got to enjoy them with a splash of syrup.
The children also spent some time practicing tying knots. They did really well and enjoyed seeing how many they could tie on their piece of string. The challenge came when they had to untie them!
Dr Collins lead the children around the school grounds to discuss their ideas on what we, as a school, could create in some of the overgrown areas at the back of the field. The children had some great ideas: large insect hotel area, mini Stonehenge, a den building area and a designated area for crafting. Dr Collins explained that she is going to feed these ideas back to Mrs Wall so watch this space for further developments!
