The children have thoroughly enjoyed their first half term of Forest School with Sarah the forest school leader from Great Scott Adventures.
We have attached a group of photographs and a couple of videos to give you a taster of the activities the children have enjoyed. Each week the children sit around the fire circle and enjoy seeing the fire being lit. They warm the water for their hot chocolate on the fire in the kettle and sometimes cook snack on the fire too.
Snacks the children have enjoyed this half term are: porridge when they explored Goldilocks and the 3 bears week, Carrot fritters, apple crumble for apple week and this week they made nettle crisps! After snack the children independently wash their dishes which they thoroughly enjoy.
Every week there are a range of activities on offer in the forest school area such as the teddy catapult – the hammock for children or teddies and the mud kitchen.
