Forest School

Year 5 & 6 Falcons, Hawks and Kestrels have enjoyed their Forest school sessions, despite the weather being quite wet and windy, we have managed to have fun. We have built shelters, habitats for animals, made forest art,  climbed trees, made hammocks and swings and a game for everyone at forest school to enjoy
Don’t forget the weather is beginning to get colder and wetter, but we will still be out, embracing the Forest School saying... There's no such thing as the wrong weather, just the wrong clothing
Hedgehogs showed wonderful teamwork and imaginary skills creating habitats for our little soft toy friends. 
 Rabbits and Moles had a wonderful time dipping apples in the chocolate that we melted on our campfire
Dragonflies and Ladybirds had a brilliant time finding the animals that were hidden around our Forest School site. They each build a home for their animal and gathered food
Rabbits enjoyed an end of term hot chocolate with marshmallows around the campfire treat

Forest School is a unique educational experience and process offering children opportunities to succeed, develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment. Children engage through motivating, achievable tasks, and activities throughout the year and in almost all weathers, with appropriate footwear and clothing. Children will play, learn, work with tools, learn and begin to understand boundaries of behaviour, both physically and socially. Growing in confidence, self- esteem and motivation whilst developing an understanding of the natural world around them.
