Forest Schools at Prince Edward

This year all our pupils will have a chance to work with the amazing team at Forest Schools. We are so lucky with our school grounds. We have so much outdoor space and it’s perfect for the type of work we’ll be doing with Forest Schools.

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!

Sarah asked us to collect the same items that she had. However, we had to memorise the objects she showed us and we weren’t allowed a second look.

Kasey: It was fun to climb the trees.

We used identification cards to find out what trees, plants and flowers we have in our secret garden.  We looked closely at the leaf shape, the colour of leaves or flowers and worked with our team mates to find out…
