EYFS Forest School

Forest School

Forest School is a specialised leaning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor education.

Potions

We used leaves, berries and mud to make a magical potion! We then used a special stirring stick to mix it all together.

 

Rudolph Stick Sculptures

We used clay, sticks, leaves and berries to create Rudolph sculptures. 

Using Tools Safely

We learnt how to use the potato peelers safely. We have to sit in the respect position and peel away from our bodies.

Magic Wands

We made our very own magic wands! We used potato peelers to peel the bark off a stick. We then used felt tips, ribbon and glitter to decorate our magic wands! 

It's a rainbow, glitter, unicorn wand!
Bibbity boppity boo! Mine's a rainbow glitter wand
Abra cadabra, turn you into a frog!
Mine's a racing car wand!
