Forest School

We had a great time today at Forest School. First of all we found out how to keep ourselves safe around the fire pit and chose special names. We then looked for hazards around the site and marked them with flags.

We found out how to lay a fire, starting with the big sticks at the bottom and finishing with the small sticks at the top, with each layer lined up in a different direction.

After playtime we used clay and bits of leaves and twigs to make clay faces on the trees.

Here are the Forest Friends that we made.

In the afternoon we lit our fire and had marshmallows. We then went off bug hunting before it was time to finish. It was a really fun day.
