Forest School this week…

At Forest School this week:
TEAM WORK CONT….
A great fire team,  Isabella, Isla and William, who  worked really hard to get the fire going in the wind and to make it safe enough for us to heat up our jacket potatoes for our snack and for us to sit around.
In our teams this week our challenges were:
1: To put up a shelter in the high winds that we could all get into.
2:Measure some of the trees on the site and see how old they were. 1 inch = 1 year
3: Collect lots of fire wood.
The shelter building, this week, built on skills that the children gained last week with the added bonus of strong winds proved  a challenge to all. It was amazing to see all the children working together in their teams with 1 basha , 2 bungees and some homemade wooden pegs to create a shelter that did withstand the wind. Hopefully these skills will be put to good use next week when the annual Crakehall Floods come to Forest School.
The wood pile is looking good thanks to all the different assortment of wood the children collected.
Not all teams managed to complete the tree challenge and this will be revisited next week. Well done to the 2 teams that have started.
Snack this week jacket potatoes and hot Ribena.
Just enough time for a quick play in the bog before returning to school in time for lunch.​

Forest School this week

This week at Forest School:
Fire group: Roxie ,Robert and Jake. The fire was great to toast our toast on. It took a little while to get going as it was damp but dried leaves helped. We used cotton wool and tumble drier fluff to start the fire. The cotton wool was easier to light but went out quicker. Bob commented on how well this group had worked together encouraging and supporting each other to succeed in making the fire.
CHALLENGES: ‘Team work’ was the focus of today’s session.  4 groups with 3 challenges.
Challenge 1: To make butter
Challenge 2: To make a den
Challenge 3: To complete a scavenger hunt
The children were put into group and asked to complete the challenges within an hour and a quarter.
They had to many decisions to make, which order they would do thing, who would do what etc..
The teams all worked hard and with a huge amount  of TENACITY managed to complete the Challenges.
The children enjoyed using their own butter on their toast and have brought back the butter milk and spare butter to make soda bread next week with Mrs Latta.
Our final challenge was a whole class one. A huge tree had come the beck and was stuck. As a class we had to decide the best way to get the tree out while keeping everyone safe.
Some children went in the water to help others stayed on the side. After lots of heaving and hoeing and 123’s the tree came out. ‘The tree is really heavy as it has lots of water inside’ one child commented.
GREAT TEAM WORK CLASS 3.

Forest School Spring Term Week 2 2016

A crisp Monday morning saw class 3 at Forest school ,the children were all wrapped up well and a buzz of excitement and trepidation could be felt among them . PHEASANT WEEK.!
The children had chosen to look at pheasant during their planning session. They want to pluck and eat it.
CHALLENGE1: Get the pheasant ready for eating. Looking at the organs etc…
CHALLENGE 2:Make a  temporary den using the tarpaulins and tidy up ‘leaving no trace’.
Fire group this week: Ruby, Harry and Joe. A great fire to cook the pheasant and pitta bread for snack.​
​Katie
At forest school I plucked pheasant ,chopped its wing and feet head off. I pulled the ribs up to look at he intestines, heart , and lungs. I made a den with Abi ,Jake and Bradley. It was a good strong den. We had to take it down at he end because we have sheep in the field. We had pitta bread and hot chocolate for snack and also tried pheasant which was just a bit stronger than chicken.

The Mud Kitchen

Over the Christmas holidays our mud kitchen has been under construction.
Today it arrived at school with the table and chairs for the children as well as some extra adult size chairs.
A big thank you to FOCS for funding this fantastic addition to our Butterfly Forest as well as the planters for around the perimeter of the grounds. Malcolm our neighbour is busy growing some buddleia bushes for next year which will help attract the butterflies into our Butterfly Forest.
