Learning together, growing together

Group 1


The last session for group 1 and a chilly start. We packed some Hot Chocolate to keep us warm. The

children wanted to go on another rope adventure so we went down to look at the stream. It was fuller than last week so we could not get all the way across. Instead we built damns for the beavers who were coming to visit that afternoon. As we built the damns the water got deeper so we then had to build bridges across. What an exciting rope adventure.

When we got to our Forest School site some children wanted to make more wands whilst others wanted to play in the hammocks. Fraser had a great idea about using a hole in the wood to put flowers in. We made some holes and our wands changed into stick people.


Finding Fairy Hats

Group 1 started their last block of Forest School sessions. It was a lovely day, the sun was shining and thousands of bluebells were sparkling. We decided to go over and have a look. We had a rope adventure across the stream and a very steep climb to find them.

When we got to our Forest School site we put up some hammocks and made some fairy sticks. We didn't have hot chocolate this week as it was so warm, instead we had juice and biscuits.


Smelly Adventures

This week we set out on an adventure! The wild garlic is just starting to come out, the fresh shoots make great garlic bread or a sauce for pasta. Unfortunately the good stuff was over the river which was full of water after all the snow melting. We went off to discover a way across. We found a secret path over the fallen log but there was still a stream to cross. We tried to make a rope bridge but no one wanted to get wet feet. We found a huge log that the children worked hard to put across the stream, it reached the whole way. We then used the rope to help keep balance. We then found lots and lots of wild garlic. Miss Mason said she would have a go at making some garlic sauce if she has some time this week.

On the way back across the stream we found some fantastic Jelly Ear fungus. I thought it looked like the B.F.G.'s ears.

Just time for a biscuit and some hot chocolate for those who wanted it before home time.
