Forest School Blog for Week Ending 3rd November
5 November 2017

In the first forest school sessions for this half of term the children having been helping to prepare the site for winter sessions. A new site for the fire circle, at the top of the jungle is being cleared, involving digging up a rotten, wooden climbing feature. We looked at how to use leverage with appropriate tools to remove the partially buried logs, and how to work safely with large tools in proximity to others.

Another group of children helped to sort the garden waste into piles to burn or to compost and we talked about building appropriate places to collect composting material.

These first sessions were also an opportunity to enjoy the regular activities of mud kitchen, den building, swinging, climbing, crafts and minibeast hunting. We found insects settled into snug spaces for the winter and were careful not to disturb them, and we will be combining hay with the rotten logs we have dug up, to create a second hibernation station for our wide selection of jungle creatures.
