A new group joined Forest School this week and fun exploring the areas and using their senses. We went on a sensory walk and heard tweeting birds, crunching leaves, felt smooth rocks and spikey twigs, we even found some cold, wet, slimy worms to hold!

After that, we had a go at building small shelters out of natural materials to keep a small animal warm in this cold winter. We worked collaboratively in teams and showed resilience when things went wrong. Adam and Rayan moved the site of their shelter to the base of a tree to help get more cover and Tabgila and Wasame changed the structure of their base to make it stronger.
