Saturday Forest School Workshop 08/06/2024

On Saturday some of our year R families visited our Forest School site for some fun and woodland crafts.   We were lucky with the weather as it was slightly overcast but dry. 


Our morning started with a brief introduction into Forest School and a safety brief, all of our Portway children knew the rules.   The first demonstration was Hapa Zome which is a Japanese ancient art form of leaf bashing. We talked a lot about knowing what we are picking and identifying leaves and flowers before we pick them.  We also talked about not picking wild flowers as in some cases they are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside act.  Families also had the opportunity to make spring mobiles and clay flower prints.


Our final activity was toasting brioche buns (link to Paris Olympics 2024) on the open fire.  They were enjoyed by all, along with a hot chocolate!
