Hazel class had a fantastic first ‘Forest school’ session! The children went searching in the forest for facts about Hazel trees. They even all gave a hazel nut a try! After that they went and tried to identify the trees in the forest using their tree ID dials. They were very excited to discover a horse chestnut and can’t wait for the conkers to arrive!
We used our first tool, a palm drill, to make a name necklace. The children worked really well together and persevered as it was very challenging making the hole for the string. The children are very excited for their next forest school activity.
Isabela M- ‘I enjoyed learning facts about my class name and trying a hazel nut was very exciting.’
Kyle T- ‘It was very challenging to make the name necklace but I was very happy to see what I had made by the end of the activity.’
Last year, Mrs McGrath ran the Forest School sessions for some of our EYFS children. Here the children take part in many different activities such as putting up a tent and creating mud portraits.
