Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 had a true forest school adventure this week – jam packed from start to finish. After harvesting the potatoes and carrots we had grown last year, we decided to cook them in the woods. On the way, we foraged for elderberries on the school field then cooked everything on a camping stove.
It was Reception’s first visit to forest school and they had great fun exploring the woods and splashing in the stream with the older children helping them along and encouraging them to try new things.
Back in the classroom, everyone tried some of their home grown harvest and it was given a definite vote of approval. They are very keen to grow lots more next spring!
