Mark Making, (Forest School Style!)

Wednesday, 12 December 2018

Oaks and Firs had a busy time today, finding lots of ways to make marks, draw, colour, paint and write, whilst out in the woods. Activities on offer including painting with natural brushes made using a range of different leaves, colouring and writing with squashed blackberries, and making/using mud paint.

Decorations galore…

Wednesday, 5 December 2018

Today we had a day indoors, making special Christmas decorations and decorating our Forest School Christmas Tree. Look at what we made…

When we’d finished , we took turns to decorate our tree with lots of different Forest School made decorations. We thought it looked lovely when it was done!

Bread on sticks

Tuesday, 4 December 2018

Poplars had a lovely time this morning making damper bread by mixing flour, a little sugar and some water, and then kneeding it in a sealed bag until it formed a dough. They wrapped the dough around a clean, peeled stick and held it over the embers of the fire until it was cooked. The children had to be patient, and had to look carefully at their bread as it cooked, so that it didn’t burn. Everyone enjoyed tasting their bread…look at all these big smiles!
