Last Thursday we had our first Forest School session. We played sticky elbows, discovered base camp, had a game of hide and seek and explored the Forest School site. We learned some of the rules for Forest School too – we can climb trees as high as the leaders shoulders; we are not to pick anything that is growing; we found out the correct way to carry small and large sticks; we must try to keep our hands away from our faces and especially our mouths! We also had a great deal of FUN! Check out our slide show and look out for more photographs of us during the year.
