Back at Forest School!

owlsatgastrells

We were really excited to go back on the Forest School site today.It has been very slippery after the bad weather so we have been going for walks instead. It was good to be able to climb, build dens, hammer in stakes and do some swinging today. We had lots of fun even though it was cold and frosty. We put fleeces on and Jasper said he was wearing 6 layers!

BAM Group Adventure

  
On the 11th February the first ever BAM boys group set off on a 5 mile hike that took them along Rodborough Common, past Minchinhampton common and down through Amberley and Theescombe to Dunkirk Mill. From there we walked along the cycle path into Nailsworth and finally arrived at our destination, a yurt in Rockness, where we had our awards ceremony.

Over the last 10 weeks the boys have been meeting to try out new challenges in order to build their skills in:

  • Resilience
  • Problem Solving
  • Emotional Literacy
  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Self and Peer Advocacy
  • Communication

I am incredibly proud of all of them for all they have achieved and it has been a privilege to guide them through this journey.

A special thanks must go to Miss Spiropulous who joined us on our hike (and brought the marshmallows)

Year 5 trip to SkillZone Gloucester

On Wednesday the whole of year 5 visited the Skill Zone centre in Gloucester. The aim of the trip was to experience and examine a whole range of situations from household fires and the dangers in the home to dark alleys and trips on buses and how to make sure we stay safe at all times.

This was a hugely valuable experience for all the children and one which will hopefully make them think when they are in certain situations in the future.
