Forest School Fun

Monday, January 31st 2022

On Friday, the learners at Forest School helped out at the reserve by clearing away some of the debris left behind by storm Arwen. They made good use of some of the fallen trees by creating board games from pieces of the wood. First, they created the board with marker pens on thin slices of tree trunks.

Next, counters were cut from Hazel stems (left over from the recent coppice work).

At the end, each family had a set of 'noughts and crosses' to take home with them.

There was a lot of perserverance lighting a bonfire using flint and steel. The brash burned quickly and the heat was just enough for a bit of cooking. It was a lot of fun making popcorn with the tried and tested 'popcorn machine' which hadn't been used for a couple of years! Once dusted off, it worked a treat!

If you fancy having a go at some of these activities why not book onto our half term Forest School event
