What amazing fun we've been having learning new Forest School Skills. The children have been using the bow saw to make wood cookies, using rope to help tie a slack line, hammering in tent pegs and also nails to give their 'enormous turnips' hair !
They have also been thinking about the world around us and exploring signs of Autumn. We had a trip around the school grounds and also Kings-croft to see what we could find. It was very successful, we picked pears, blackberries and also found yellow and brown leaves !  

Hammock fun..... and busy in the mud pit and kitchen . 

WOW! trying out the bow saw!.....
After a thorough wash we had some blackberry tasting and then crushed them into blackberry paint ! 

Slack line tying and hammering!
