Year 6's final session in the woods

Submitted by tawnyowl on Monday, July 1, 2019 - 19:22

Year 6 chose to have a whole day in the woods today.

Wren provided a shuttle to run the children to the wood in 2 groups. 

It was not a usual Forest School session because there were 28 children to support.

They began with a game of Beetle Tag, after a small group had chosen an area to play. The children played with enthusiasm and good humour (although Tawny Owl began to feel that she was being caught an awful lot, however, she quite enjoyed lying on the ground with her arms and legs waving in the air)!

After this game, the children separated into groups to carry out activities. As there were so many children Tawny Owl requested that all the children needed to participate in 2 of the activities. Sadly, some of the group decided that this instruction didn't apply to them; not good team work.

However, many children enjoyed the activities on offer: cooking (menu below), making fire sticks, cutting and splitting wood, carrying out a bioblitz (results in the photos), finishing off obstacle course activities.

Today's Menu:

Pizza Calzone

Vegetable kebabs

Nettle Crisps

Trout cooked in newspaper

Chocolate dipped fruit

The day was over before we knew it! There was a lot of equipment to carry, but we managed to get everything back to the minibus/cars in good time.

 

Tawny Owl would especailly like to thank Mouse who gives up her valuable time volutarily. Thank you Mouse.

Thank you Mr Price for some of the trout!

Thank you also to Wren who works so hard to support Tawny Owl with her hare-brained ideas!

Thank you everyone! Remember all you have learned year 6, and good luck in your new schools.

Have a look at the main set of photos on the class gallery.
