Today we collected some wood for our campfire next week! We found magic wands and cast magic spells too!
Today at Forest School we got time to explore the outdoor area! We played lots of games such as 'duck, duck goose' and 'pass the bogey' we had lots of fun! We then had time to play and explore, some of us even had a go at climbing a tree!
This week we went on a journey to find Miss Housley's little friends! We had to be really quiet and sneak up on them so we wouldn't scare them away. When we got to the friendship tree we heard the story of the sneezy dragon and how he scared our friends away! We had lots of ideas about how to help them, we built them new houses, made a 'dragon alarm system' and made a trap to catch him!
Today we used lots of different tools at Forest School! We used the bow saw and the loppers to chop some wood for fire wood for next week, we had to work in small groups and with Miss Housley. We really enjoyed using the tools!
Today we all did Forest School together, we had the special treat of having a real campfire! Miss Housley showed us how to light the fire then we took it in turns to roast marshmallows over the fire, it was lots of fun!
Today at Forest School we went to find our little friends to see if they liked their houses, when we got there we found a letter from the very sneezy dragon! It told us he was sorry for blowing down our friends houses and he asked for our help. We made him some medicine and hot chocolate to make him feel better.
Today at Forest School we learnt all about natural and unnatural objects, we collected objects we could find around the Forest School area and sorted them into natural and unnatural piles. We talked about why it is important to look after the outdoor area and why some unnatural objects shouldn't be outside.
Today at Forest School we used the bow saw to make a rope swing! We had to work together to cut the logs down to size and tie them together to make a base for the swing. We had lots of fun playing on it! We enjoyed swinging in the hammock too!
