Forest School Y 3 and 4
This term Year 4 have the opportunity to take their learning outside and take part in Forest School. These sessions take place in the woods near the hospital/opposite Oldmixon. The purpose of these sessions is to give children dedicated time to explore and learn in natural surroundings.
This term Year 4 created boundary signs, hunted for bugs and made observational drawings of leaves. They learnt to identify Elm trees and are looking forward to discovering more about different trees over the next few weeks.
The children had a busy afternoon learning new forest skills including lighting a fire in the Kelly Kettle to make hot chocolate, making a fire in the fire pit to toasting marshmallows and whittling a roasting stick.
Year 3 have had an amazing time at Forest School this term! We have made mud faces, made pictures with all the natural things we found, made den's for small animals and for ourselves, did the layers of the the forest and many more exciting things!
