The teachers love it too! We used sticks to make frames for weaving.

Every Wednesday afternoon a group of 13 intrepid girls from years 4,5 and 6 venture out onto the school field with Ms Randall to learn about nature and bushcraft skills. We use the principles of Forest Schools to develop the children’s confidence, resilience and communication skills, while having great fun and learning practical skills out of doors. So far we have tried shelter building, campfire cooking, making jewellery from Elder sticks and using a bow saw to make pendants. Tomorrow we will be planting some new trees to turn our our school grounds into a haven for wildlife. After the winter break it will be time for some boys to try their hands at these outdoor activities.
