Sycamore at Forest School Week 1

What a great week for Sycamore to start Forest School! It was the last day of good weather before the temperatures dropped again and the rains set in so we made the most of it. Even though it was dry we raised the main tarp because, you never know, we may need it next week. There was some great teamwork and encouragement on show! The children then started collecting sticks for the fire to keep us warm and following this the children were reminded about fire safety and linking the fire circle to the blood bubble.

The children were given the opportunity to light pieces of cotton wool with a fire steel as practice for them lighting their own fires in the two weeks to come and, though some were more successful than others, there was a fantastic level of perseverance on show!

The majority of the session was taken up with…den building! Tarps and ropes were collected and constructions were raised all over our area of the woods. It was lovely to see the energy that this task was approached with, some great teamwork helping to make and then improve some fantastic dens. Some were decorated; some had coat racks; some had seats and some even had ‘tvs with remote controls’!

I look forward to more of the same energy and enthusiasm (with hopefully a repeat of the good weather!) next week.


Until then
