Hammer Time!!

It was another lovely sunny day in Forest School today. We gathered as always in the  log circle to look at what we could do…

Whilst the sun shone, we look the opportunity to sit quietly, listen carefully and practise using the hammer to tap nails into a big slice of wood. We started off by remembering how and where to hold the hammer, naming the  handle, the  head and the claw of the hammer.

We used a special glove on our helper hand and carefully tapped in the nails. Then we chose a band to stretch beween two nails…

What great work! Also on offer today was a building challenge, using lots of small wood slices. The children stacked, built bridges, made a wood sandwich and counted and sorted them…

…and we bug hunted, shared the hammock, and enjoyed every minute on our time in the woods!
