We had a super afternoon at Forest School and managed to avoid the rain! After a short journey by minibus we met Emma and her dog Hattie. We started with a 'sticky toes' circle and talked about the Forest School rules: no pick, no lick and stop at the boundary.
Then we followed the arrows through the woods to base camp for our snack.
We started by looking at the layers of the wood, from the tallest trees at the top of the canopy to the plants growing on the woodland floor. Class 1 really impressed Emma with how carefully they listened and produced some fantastic drawings to bring back to school.
After that there were lots of different activities to choose from; matching leaves to a paint colour chart, completing life cycles and using the giant magnifying glasses. There was also lots of freedom to explore the different areas of the wood and head off on adventures with friends!
When the whistle blew we headed back to base camp and finished the afternoon with the 'stick song'.
Thank you very much to our parent helpers and to Mrs Lucas and Mrs Gorman for driving the minibuses.
