Class 2 were asked to share what they liked about Forest Schools.


class2 ideas



"I like Forest Schools because I like making bug hotels." 



"When we do Forest Schools we get wet and muddy." 



"I like Forest Schools because we do fun things like toasting marhmallows on the fire,we made grass houses and we roll down the big grassy hill."



"I like it when Mrs Wilson pours water on our heads!"







Class 2 are busy investigating who lives in their square.

Each group have been given string, four tents pegs and have marked out a square on our school field.

Over the next few weeks they will be keeping a close eye on who is living in their square.
