A Day with Tools

During Outdoor Week we used tools at school. Miss Haywood and Miss Kniveton made name tags with all of the children in Key Stage two. 


The children were invited to join us in the forest where we demonstrated how to use a bow saw to cut wood to create a name tag.


The children were taught about tool safety and how to hold, carry and store the tools. We demonstrated how to safely use a bow saw to the children and gave detailed reasoning behind how we held the tool and positioned our bodies whilst working with it.DSCF6021.JPG

When the children had cut a piece of wood for their tag and their partners tag they decorated them using felt tip pens.

A Day with Fire

During Outdoor Week we had a fire at school. Miss Haywood and Miss Kniveton set a fire on the back field using a washing machine drum.

They invited the whole school  to join them one class at a time and learn about fire safety. They cooked popcorn and marshmallows on the fire. We were able to try all the food they cooked and some of us had a go at cooking on the fire too!

IMG_6733 (640x480).jpg We sang camp fire songs and shared stories about when we had cooked food on an open fire.

We sat on our new based. We have new seats which were made from a tree which had fallen in to our forest.

We played witches.

Today we were looking at the different types of trees that grew in our Forest. Some of us helped Miss Haywood label them.

IMG_4857 (640x480).jpgA tree had fallen down into our forest so we had to be very careful. We couldn't play near or under the tree as it is very dangerous.

Miss Haywood read us a story during snack time.

We built a wall out of wood around our base. IMG_4849 (640x480).jpg

Level 3 Practitioner 

​After lots of hard work Miss Kniveton is proud to say she is officially qualified as a Level three Forest School Practitioner.


She could not have done this with out all the support of the school, the parents and especially the children who have been so enthusiastic and made it a real joy!

Most of all none of this could have happened without all the help, support and hard work of Miss Haywood. She is an extremely inspiring teacher and we are pleased to say she is currently training to be a level three practitioner too!

We can't wait to see our Forest School grow.

We played lots of games including games with the parachute.

We made a den in the parachute! It did get a bit hot inside it though.

Miss Kniveton said she saw something in the forest. She wasn't sure but she thought it was bunny ears, a bunny tail and eggs!

We went to investigate.

The Easter Bunny had left us treats!

Bugs Beds
Today we looked for bugs and things that lived in the forest.

IMG_3860 (640x480).jpg 

We decided to build dens so that more animals and bugs would want to visit our forest.
