We had a fun morning of learning yesterday with year 5. The children stretched their collaboration muscles and were absorbed with the morning’s activities. I really enjoyed sitting around the fire and talking to year 5 about some of their favourite things from this year’s Forest School sessions. It was interesting to hear how different … Continue reading
Today we did something really different at Forest Schools. A few weeks ago Miss Astle asked me if I thought it would be possible to have a session for children from CIRP and also invite children and adults from other resource provisions. Straight away I said “Let’s do it”, but at the back of my … Continue reading

It will take me a little time to put it together so here are a few pictures … Continue reading

There was lots of learning so I am sure I missed some – which ones did I miss? Which ones did you use? I will see you back in the woods when you are in year 4! I … Continue reading
Some of our youngest children were building homes for the animals from the Gruffalo story today. Have a look at what they did.
Year 1 told me the story about the Lighthouse keeper’s lunch. I heard how the keeper’s wife sent his packed lunch to the lighthouse on a line. Some of the children thought it might be wire, some thought it was rope. We looked at the pictures and saw the basket was attached to the rope … Continue reading
