Year 2 Forest School - 20th April 2021
On Tuesday 20th April, Year 2 attended their very first Forest School Session. They were introduced to Mr Yates who was going to be running our sessions. To begin with, Mr Yates taught the children how to keep safe, particularly when walking around the firepit. We then went on a guided tour of the urban forest and identified potential dangers.
The focus of the session was to use natural resources to build a den for their (plastic) animals which would shelter them from the elements. The children could use sawdust and hay to create a comfortable bedding area. It was lovely to see the children's imaginations come to life and there were some excellent design features including built-in entertainment and defence mechanisms.
The children are really looking forward to their next session.
