Forest School

All the puipls accessing forest school or completing their John Muir discovery award during the summer term have enjoyed visually tracking the fox family that live on our site. They have looked for signs of their movement around the site, to know the best places to put our wildlife trail camera to capture images of them. We have been sucessfull capturing some great footage of the family of 4 foxes and some bonus footage of some other creatures using our site when we are not there.

4AS have loved tracking the fox tracks across our Forest School site and setting up a trail camera to capture them. They have also worked hard on preparing the raised beds for our vegetable/wild flower planting, planting additional trees around the site and begining to install a shallow wildlife pool. All this has contributed towards their John Muir discovery award.

Tigers have loved exploring at Forest school over the last half term. Learning new things, directing their own learning in ways that excite them and cooperating and sharing with others.

Foxes and Eagles and 3J have been doing lots of creative activities at forest school. Making Elder jewelry, weaving wool flowers, making water dispersing hearts, clay creations and creating Nordic swing braids.

3J investigated owl pellets to discover what types of things owls eat. They discovered a variety of small mammal bones. 

KS3 and KS4 have been exploring the Forest School site and learning about the different things that grow and live there. Working as a team throughout the activity to investigate different discoveries together and to report their findings back to the rest of the group.
