As we look forward to our Christmas break it is important that we leave our Forest School in a good state of repair. It was also an opportunity for those that had mastered the knots we have been learning to share their knowledge with those who found it more challenging. The children made themselves busy clearing out the henhouse, collecting leaves, weeding and turning over the raised beds. The hen feeders were also serviced. Nuts were replaced and tightened and mechanisms oiled. This required selecting the right tools for the job, in this instance a spanner and a socket wrench, then working co-operatively to make the repairs. The hens will be pleased with their new roosts and feeders, no doubt they will miss the children but don’t worry Miss Rowe will make sure they are well looked after over the holidays.
Principle 2: Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural wooded environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.
Article – 17 We all have the right to be given safe and honest information, which is not harmful, and that we can understand.
