Forest School

We had a great time at our first Forest School session. We explored 'mud' and had lots of fun. There was some initial reluctance but this was quickly followed with squeals of enjoyment and so much laughter. It seems a good time was had by one and all. 

Today we enjoyed our second session and discovered how to safely cut pieces of elder and remove the pith. We made some 'humble beads' and turned them into our very own jewellery. We peeled the bark into different patterns and had to learn to use the various tools safely. We have planted a cutting from the elder tree to make sure we replace what we use. 

Our third session found us using saws and drills in 'The Wild' to make some pendants and medals. The sawing was much harder than any of us imagined and perseverance was put to the test when drilling a hole through our wood slice. It's great to be out in the fresh air learning new skills and laughing together. 

The final Forest School session was much anticipated and didn't disappoint! We used the 'flint and steel' to light a fire and uncovered the attributes of perseverance and determination. Having successfully worked as a team to light a fire we toasted some marshmallows to make 's'mores' and enjoyed some hot chocolate from the water we boiled in the billy kettle. 

Thank you Mrs Powell for your time after school to share your knowledge and skills.
