Today we found out our mission for the next 6 weeks is to complete caveman training! We have a list of tasks we must complete in order to become cavemen! This week we made a home for the cavemen; we worked together as a team! Some of us had a go as using a bow saw, it was a bit tricky but we were very proud!
Today we put up a hammock, we really enjoyed relaxing in it! We also made a campfire! We got the chance to toast a marshmallow, it was a bit scary getting close to the fire at first but we really enjoyed it! We helped to put out the fire by making a wish on it.
This week we used the tools to make bow and arrows, we had to use the loppers and the sheath knife to make them. Some of us also used charcoal to do cave drawings on some rocks.
Today Miss Housley showed us how to safely light a fire, we talked about what to use and how to light the fire using a flint and steel. We even got to have a go! It was a bit tricky using the flint and steel but we all managed to do it!
This week at Forest School we made yummy pizza's on the campfire! It was lots of fun watching them cook, we really enjoyed eating them!
Today was out last Forest School session, we decided that we would like to play lots of games and roast marshmallows on the fire to make yummy smores! We have had lots of fun at Forest School!
