It’s always lovely to have a group out that are Forest School pros!  They couldn’t wait to get outside and many of them had already decided what they wanted to do - whether it was searching for worms or whittling a stick!

Forest school was a hive of activity all afternoon with some choosing to help make the Guy for bonfire night on Thursday whilst others learned to square lash to make a sword, sawed a tree cookie or made clay nature plaques.  We also had a spot of science around the fire as we talked about melting and solidifying whilst making some spooky soaps to take home.   The rain came on suddenly and some children rallied around to quickly make dens…but we’ll definitely need to try and be a bit quicker next time!!
