Forest Schools

Today, following on from our literacy lesson about defending a castle, the children were set on the task of making catapults and bows and arrows. With the help of Miss Vicky and Freya's mum the children were able to make fantastic weapons and the arrows really did fly!

Forest School September 2018

Back to school and Forest School is in full swing.  This week we had a challenge to turn 2 sticks and 2 pieces of string into a trapdoor  to catch the naughty Leprachaun who lives in the woods.   We learnt how to make a slip knot for a snare trap and we found a skull from a small mammal (any ideas what animal it is?).
