2022-23 Term 2.1 Forest school

We have enjoyed a busy half term in Forest school. It has been very cold so we have had to keep very busy to keep ourselves warm.

Our half termly Characteristic of Effective Learning focus this half term has been – Active Learning – persisting with activity when challenges occur, being proud of how they accomplished something. The children have been challenging themselves so master activities they have found tricky or a little bit scary previously and do these with less adult support or completely independantly. The children can now balance and use the rope bridges and some have learnt how to climb onto the tyre swing all by themselves! Amazing!

We have enjoyed looking at the changes in the forest over winter and have been busy drawing what we can see. We have been looking after the brids by making bird pizzas for them. We have thought about animals that need to hibernate over winter and some of the children made houses, nests and dens for bears, frogs and hedgehogs.

We enjoyed a bear hunt around the forest as an extension of our focus story and the children have been creating their very own hunts for bears, birds, dinosaurs and foxes!

We have also welcomed our grown ups into the forest for lots of fun!
