Owls class forest school

Forest school principal - Building resillience

We have had to manage some rather wet, cold and muddy conditions lately. It has helped us to build resillience and to make adaptations to our play to deal with slippery surfaces and being able to keep moving to stay warm. We have also enjoyed having a fire to keep warm and to make pancakes. 

Forest school principle - Nature connection. 

We love curling up under the story tree to listen to stories about different animals. This week a bat story. We didn't spot any while drinking our hot chocolate but we could hang upside down just like them. 

Great listening and instruction following to use knives for whittling. 

Forest school principle - Building a community. 

We are so good at working together to solve problems in our forest school sessions. 

Forest school principle - Taking managed risks. 


We share a talking stick at the end of each session. This is what Owl class said about their first session. 


I loved playing hide and seek. 

I pushed my friend in the hammock.

I loved making mud pie.

I liked snack and sitting on the logs.

We love climbing trees.
