Forest Fun

Saturday, October 30th 2021

This month at Forest School the learners helped to continue the work in the Hazel Coppice. Under supervision they used loppers and saws to fell some more stems and to cut the Hazel into smaller pieces.

The children added lengths of Hazel to the 'fedge' (a cross between a fence and a hedge)!

Larger pieces were added to a habitat pile for creatures to live in and smaller branches that were not 'hedge worthy' were cut up for a small campfire.

Last time the group made butter and spread it onto bread. Yesterday, they had a go at mixing twister dough and baking it on the end of a stick. 

Who knows what we will get up to next month?!
