Forest School News
Year 2 have been very busy in Forest School over the last fortnight. We have been practising making a spark with a flint and steel. Once we had mastered the technique and were able to create 'good' sparks we attempted to light a ball of cotton wool. The amount of perseverance displayed by the children was amazing and the sense of joy they experienced when they achieved a fire was beautiful to see.
The damper weather has proved to be the ideal conditions for investigating the numerous slugs and snails we find in Forest School. We have made some habitats for them and enjoyed observing how they move and eat. We have also been den building, making jubilee pompom decorations and digging for bones and treasure! I was very impressed with the bird reserve which some of the children had put together and took great delight in showing me round!
