It was great to be back out in the Forest School area with the KS2 group. Despite it being a few weeks since our last session the children had remembered the rules and routines.
We played a few hide and seek type games to make sure we kept moving in the cold weather.
The children made their own choices for part of the session. It was great to see lots of team work and children being very focused on what they wanted to achieve. Some children decided to work alone but were just as determined to be able to complete what they had set out to do.
This den became the perfect place to sit and read a book 🙂
These children had a clear goal and with two others communicated well and worked as a team to achieve it.
Some children worked with me to use the bow saw to cut branches. This is a good mindfulness activity as the only thing you can think about is what is happening there and then 🙂 The children need to listen carefully and follow instructions. They also enjoy that there is an element of risk involved and feel a sense of achievement when they have cut through the branch.
