Forest Activities - Fantastic Fun Whatever the Weather

Children from every class have had a great time at during Forest Activities this term.  We persevered and had lots of fun in spite of the wet, chilly weather. Activities have included searching for wildlife, making mini beasts out of clay, building and testing waterproof dens and harvesting vegetables from our polytunnel. We have improved our bush craft techniques whilst whittling sticks into interesting shapes, made bird nests from hay and wool, found the ages of some of our trees and learnt some tree names. We have also begun thinking about the sustainability of woodland areas and forest maintenance, and cleared parts of the woodland, moving fallen logs to clear a path through the wood. We are looking forward to our next sessions in November.

At the end of each term the house with the highest score wins a treat of their choice- anything from an afternoon of Zorbing, an arts and craft afternoon to a movie and popcorn!
