Children are free to choose what they want to do at Forest School. They may want to use the tools or learn a new craft, help get the fire going or play on the swing. What ever is on offer there’s usually at least one den being made!
Here are a few, some all natural, using branches and leaves, other times when it’s raining opting for tarpaulins and rope.
Every Thursday in August Wild Thymes is running sessions 10am – 12:30 at Pelere Woods near Mylor.
Each week focuses on a different Forest School theme, last week was fire lighting without matches!
There’s a big badger set in the woods and whilst playing a game of ‘1,2,3 who can I see’ some of the children discovered a badger skull.
Then another and a skeleton to go with it!
We use plenty of tools at Forest School. Saturday focused on sawing rounds and nailing them onto wood to make monsters, bears and heroes.
