🌿🌲Forest Schools🌲🌿

This is the start of a very exciting whole school project. Our Y5s are the first to experience Forest Schools. By this time next year, all the pupils in our school will have worked with Forest Schools using our very own outdoor spaces.

Over the next three weeks we are going to be working with some forest school specialists.  We will use our school grounds to experience outdoor learning and increase our exploration of our outdoor environment.

Abdi: We got to explore and find different insects and wildlife.

The first activity was a warm-up game called Frozen Dragon.

After that that we entered the secret garden.  We played a game called ‘hide and peek’. We really enjoyed it!

Check out all the class blogs this week to find out what the children have been doing during Environment Week.
