This week a new group of children started Forest School sessions. We played some games to establish how to keep safe during Forest School sessions and also to help us learn each other’s names.
We then did a team building challenge, the children had to stand on a tarpaulin and, without their feet touching the grass, they had to flip the tarpaulin over. I was really impressed with how the children listened to each other and managed to achieve the task without any support from me.
Some children spent some time climbing trees.
Two girls were eager to learn how to peel the bark from a stick using the potato peelers.
We could hear some birds in the trees, so some children used the binoculars and ID sheet to try and identify what type of birds they were. We saw blue tits and magpies.
