Forest School Returns
After the Christmas break we have a new group of children ready for the Forest School challenge! At the coldest time of the year, this group of Years 4-6 have embraced our sessions with huge enthusiasm and well and truly encapsulating Forest School Principle 3 – “Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners”. Week 1 we battled with strong winds but that didn’t stop them.
Amazing team work throughout the session was observed with commitment to task including making a kite, building a shelter and creating some wonderful hapa zone creations with hammers, calico and leaves.
We even started to learn how to saw!
Windswept but happy we finished our session with hot chocolate and marshmallows – both warmly received – by our campfire.
