Yesterday, Class 6 went on a new mission for their very first day at forest school. In groups of 14, the children went by bus to Wycoller, where they got to experience their brand new outdoor classroom. The weather wasn’t really on our side; it was rainy and cold and a bit dismal really! However, we didn’t let that stop us from having lots of fun. Each group had the same elements to their session, which started with discussing the rules of forest school and how to keep safe. Then, the children played a series of games and completed a woodland activity about the conservation of the planet. Finally, we all got a well earned biscuit and drink before having 5 minutes free time to explore the new environment.
We all got extremely muddy and a bit chilly but came back with smiles all round. What a super start to our new weekly adventures!
