Forest club 20th and 21st September

In the latest forest school sessions a group of children have been focusing on den building, looking at effective ways to lash branches together to make secure structures. They will be experimenting with different types of cordage, to find the strongest and easiest to use types and have been looking at how different shapes can affect the rigidity of a structure.

In their woodland crafts some of the children have been decorating sticks with colourful streamers to celebrate the end of a busy summer and welcome in the autumn. Other children have been writing and drawing in their forest books or creating mud monsters and pets.

One group has been exploring spaces in the undergrowth to use as secret dens, and inventing secret codes and passwords. We will be adding to planting on site to create more of these fun spaces for imaginative play.
