Fun in the forest!
Spring has continued to be very exciting in the forest, especially with the changes in the weather! From rain and hail to sunshine and showers the woods have proved wonderful for learning and adventure!
Rhino and Gorilla thought about explorers and hunting. They learnt about catapults and the items they would need to make one. Learning how to use simple tools to make notches in a Y shaped stick they had to find was part of this, but the greatest fun was of course, testing them out! Jay was very pleased with his find as he wanted to make a big one, Maggie and Mazin enjoyed using the tools and Joe and Kimmie can be seen testing theirs out.
Tiger class continued with forest school this term and also used simple tools to create a bow and arrow! They focused on explorers and hunting and had to find suitable materials to create their bow and arrows. Bailey enjoyed creating his using the tools and Ediz loved testing his out too. They also carried on with their den building skills working together to lift heavier logs; this one was clearly a four man job! They were very happy with their finished den J
Lion class learnt lots about the changes in the forest environment and Marisa was fascinated by the ice and Denver had to go through the mud when the whole class went on a bear hunt! Tilly was very happy to find a bear after a long walk under and over obstacles!
Zebra class went on a bear hunt too which involved going through lots of puddles. Bailey and Harry definitely enjoyed that while others weren’t quite so sure. Jacob found a great stick to use as a staff walking through the woods to find the bears. They loved the story, exploring the forest and learning about nature.
Let’s see what Summer brings for our forest school classes!
