Forest School Lessons

Year 6 have started their Forest School lessons.

They have made a plan of the area as they are going to help set up our Forest School area.

They sketched a map of the area and used a trundle wheel to measure the perimeter. They looked at the types of plants and trees in the area and took photos and cuttings to use to help identify the names of them.

They have been using tools to cut down the willow, they are using the cut willow branches to create a fence that will section off the area from the playing field.

They learnt how to make a fence from willow branches, and worked together in teams to re-plant the willow branches.
