Forest School 

Week 3 - This week in forest school we focused on our value this half term which is Trust. We finished making our dens this week and even added furniture to them! 

We worked together in a team and had to trust one another and listen to one another when learning how to make our nature prints. First we had to collect 10 leaves to put inside our piece of cloth. We arranged them in a pattern and then folded the cloth over. Next, we found a log and Kirsty showed us how to use a hammer to hit the leaves to create an imprint. They looked amazing!! 

We finished off this week by eating our toasted marshmallows around the camp fire. 

Week 2 - This week in forest school on Wednesday we made dens! We learnt how to tie knots, carry logs and branches safely and work well as a team. Each team created their own den which would fit each member inside. We finished our lesson by toasting marshmallows and chocolate bread on the fire. Yum!!
