Larches Brilliant Boats

Larches are learning about Anglo Saxons this term. They had a super first session in Forest School, working together in teams to collect wood and to build boats…making them look like the boats the Anglo Saxons sailed in! Miss Corbett was very pleased with how well Larches all cooperated with one another and was very proud of the fabulous creativity and enthusiasm they demonstrated.

Elsewhere in the forest, a small group of children spent the morning also pretending to be Anglo Saxons- but this group were learning how to make fires using a flint a steel. They searched for and sorted sticks of different sizes, each lit their own small fire, then worked together to make a bigger one. We discussed the 3 elements a fire needs -heat (from the spark of the flint and steel) oxygen and fuel (from different sized sticks.) We learnt how to sort and grade sticks most importantly, we learnt how to be safe when making a fire.
