Forest Schools began for our year 1 children in 1B on Friday and they had such a fabulous time. Session 1 focused on keeping ourselves safe around fire and water. Mr Newsome led the session, teaching the children about the flora and fauna and encouraging their investigative skills.
The children were amazed to find (and hold) some newts. They can’t wait until next week. Here is some feedback from some children:
“I loved being around the fire the best”.
“I liked playing hide and seek and the mud!”.
“My favourite part was finding acorns.”
“I liked it when we were holding the newts. I didn’t hold one but I touched it and it felt squidgy!”
