Forest School adventures for our Year 4’s. The flash challenge was to move our new logs into our site. This activity requires positive communication skills, a very difficult job if you don’t co-operate. They made it look easy however and were delighted by their own determination.

They then continued to develop their Forest School skills. Learning how to split wood using a club hammer and splitter. Mastery of the flint and steel, which they are becoming very proficient at. Today we also added in using a bow-saw. The bow saw requires collaboration and safe working practice but is a skill the children can pick up quite quickly. They worked hard all morning and during reflection shared their proudest moments of this Forest School block. Reflective practice is a feature of each session to ensure learners and practitioners can understand their achievements, develop emotional intelligence and plan for the future.

Principle 4: Forest School offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.

Article 6 – We all have the right to be alive and to develop in the best possible way.
