Forest School: Spring Term Update

Autumn Term 2 2018.

In the Autumn term we were very lucky because Colin came back to help us plant a willow tunnel. It looks amazing, and we’re really looking forward to watching it grow and change with the seasons.

We made dens for fairies and then some larger shelters that we could fit into. It was great fun!

We made lots of Christmas crafts to take home using tree cookies and clay.

Spring Term 1 2019.

This term we are thinking about sounds in the Forest School area. We used sticks to make lots of different sounds using natural resources we found outside. We are also going to be making ‘Wind Clunks’ to hang in the trees using pine cones and sticks. We hope they will make interesting noises.

We are also thinking about the birds and shall be making some bird feeders to hang in the trees too.

We are continually developing our site and will be making a natural stumpery in a shaded area, and we shall also be developing our mini beast habitats too.
