Forest School


This term, we are very lucky to be taking our learning outside with Mrs Groom, who has a Forest School qualification. Together, we have planned some fun activities that link to our History learning. They are designed to engage the children and will hopefully help them to become more resilient when facing challenges.


The types of activities planned will enable the children to work independently and also as part of a team, build self esteem and confidence communicating with others and develop leadership skills. The children will also have opportunities to solve problems and think creatively.


There will be four adults outside with the class so that we can work in small groups. Weather permitting, the children will be building dens, making round houses, whittling pre-historic weapons and jewellery, using natural materials to paint with and building a fire as part of a group.


I will keep adding photographs so that you can see what we've been up to!


If any of you wish to continue this learning at home, Mrs Groom and I would love to see any photographs or drawings.




Today we were hunters and we whittled spears with potato peelers.

No pick,

No Lick,

Be careful with a stick!

We worked as a team to build a shelter using sticks and 'animal skins'.

We learned how to build a fire and we used flint to create a spark.

We made paint using berries and charcoal then created our own pictures inspired by Stone Age cave paintings.
