This month we have been looking at all the spring flowers that appear in the woods. We have also begun to identify some of the trees, Year R and 1 made bark rubbings and looked for patterns. Year 5 were looking at the different ways that trees grow and how different trees have different bark.

Forest School activities April

Year 5 and year 6 have been learning how to boil water using the Storm Kettles. We first learnt all the fire safety rules, how to lay and start the fire and how to safely use the Storm kettle.

Year 5 were able to set up their own fire circle, safely light the fire and feed the fire until the water boiled.

They demonstrated great teamwork after been shown   what to do by the second week were able to complete the task independently.
