The children were respecting their Forest School today and were doing a litter pick to support Anti-bullying week.

During Autumn Term 1 - Year 2 and Year 6 were the first to have their Forest School sessions.


Year 2 were challenged to make the tallest tower using sticks that were no longer than 30cm in length, build shelters using natural and man made materials, make dream catchers using willow and find objects of interest. 


Year 6 were challenged to find objects of interest and describe them using adjectives, find a tree of interest and give it a hug, make shelters and fill sand bags to help protect the Anderson shelter.


The last session ended in a camp fire where the children cooked marshmallows. Take a look at the year group page to see the photos from each of the sessions.   


Autumn Term 2 - Nursery and Year 1 are to have their Forest School sessions. Check the letter for the dates of the children and year group sessions.
