It was a very wet and windy day today so we decided not to risk falling branches and did some research inside for how we can improve our Forest School site. Some of the children thought that we needed to update our seating as our class numbers are growing and the logs we have are starting to decay. We came up with some really good ideas and drafted brilliant persuasive letters to give to Mrs Hunter in the hopes we could convince her our ideas were worth pursuing.

For our first Forest School session we discussed all the things that we would like to do in the coming year and how we could improve our site as a class. We played one of our favourite games 'Wizards, Giants and Dwarves'

This term Adventurers have been making shelters using rope and tarps. They have been using the knots they practiced last term to hold the tarps in place.
This term Adventurers have been learning how to tie a selection of knots. First they looked at the timber hitch which can be used for pulling a log along the ground. The children had a race to see if their timber hitch would hold. They also practiced square lashing and then made frame for a bird hide, which all the KS2 children used in the RSPB bird count. Finally the children learned how to tie a sheer lashing. All of these knots will be used next term when they will be building dens.
Adventurers also learned how to identify native birds that they might find on our school grounds. They put this into practice when spotting birds for the RSPB bird count.
