We now have a fully established on-site forest school. All children regularly access this fabulous facility! Here are some pictures from this year: These are examples of what we are learning:

  • team building -working with others
  • the names of at trees
  • how to ID trees in Winter
  • problem solving, keep going when things get tricky -resilience 
  • how wood rots over time
  • how to use a fire steel
  • how to build a fire
  • how to make a toasting stick from bamboo
  • how to make drop scone pancakes
  • how to create a fire circle and then how to cover up where you were to 'leave no trace
  • emulating artist Andy Goldsworthy
  • exploring colours and patterns in nature

And we have so many more exciting activities planned...all of which have been generated by the children!
