Forest School

Forest school w/c 21 March Easter egg hunt and here comes the Vikings!

Children in KS1 enjoyed searching for Easter eggs while KS2 experienced Viking life, creating coins, long boats and enjoying a Viking snack of bread and apple mead around the fire.

Forest School W/C 15 March

A busy, busy week for everybody. Den building, getting creative with clay, looking for those fist signs of spring - just so much going on!

KS2 four seasons in one day!

This afternoon we have had sun, rain, wind and hail. It certainly brought out the VIking in us, not to mention lots of opportunites to get creative in lots of mud glorious mud!

KS2 - Trading and Raiding

We did alot of construction today during our sessions. A Forest School settlement of shops and cafes were built. Moving some logs allowed us to take a peak at some of the invertebrates living under them and identify the type of woodlouse we have living in our school grounds.


The session ended with a hot chocolate (purchased  from the FS branch of Starbucks with leaves!) and some friendly trading and raiding - very Viking  like behaviour!

EYFS/KS1 - What's your favourite tree?

We went hunting for our favourite tree and found so much more! We found spiders, woodlouse, worms slugs and some very interesting eggs. 

EYFS/KS1 - Why do plants grow in the ground?

We thought about this question as we explored the Forest School area on a scavenger hunt. Bet you didn't realise that the benches around the firepit are actually Lamborghini! 

Forest School 12th February

It was a cold one today, but we kept warm building dens and working on some a 'maze' ing additions to the reflection area.

The children wanted to give something back to the FS area so they made bird feeders, started work on a reflection area alongside construting dens and exercise apparatus.  

Forest School session 29.1.21

Today was all about connecting to our 'new' forest school area. The group really made the most of the den building area.

Look what's happening in our forest school area.....

The team from Brockholes are working in all weathers to complete our firepit area and poles for den building.

Our little band of forest schoolers were happy to connect again with our FS area. It was lovely to see how supportive they were to one another.
