We have had a wonderful forest school today. Class 2 made pews for our willow church with Mr Corrie, learning to use a variety of woodworking tools safely and competently.They also used branding tools to write the school name on them.
All the children have been learning how to start a fire, some without matches! We have made hot drinks and cooked delicous spicy apples.. A big thank you to Tara Hollis for helping out with fire activities.
The children have also worked together to clear our vegetable beds for the winter, spread amazing leaf mulch we made over the last year and collect leaves to make more for next year.
Class 1 made a dragon in the style of Andy Goldsworthy using autumn leaves. With natural found materials they found on the school grounds, they also created their own pictures.
We ended the day with a very special assembly in our willow church complete with new handmade pews!
