Knife work with Larches…

A super proud day today. Larches proved how far they’ve come in their Forest School journey, by making Mrs Smith very proud of how safe, sensible and focussed they were when given the opportunity to use a knife.

Everyone listened and responded to a knife ‘tool talk’ and every child was able to show us how to sit, where to position the knife when cutting, how and where to hold it correctly, which direction to use it in and what to do with it after they had finished. Larches were able to follow all the safety rules and showed real concentration and determination. Whittling their sticks into a point wasn’t easy and it took some time. But the satisfaction of achieving a perfect point (for a marshmallow to go on next week) was great to see. Well done Larches.
