Year 2 have been studying habitats in class and have watched frogspawn hatch into tadpoles so this week we released them into the small pond up in New Wood. The hope is they will continues to grow and we will have lots of little frogs hopping all over the place after Easter.
They have also had a Design and Technology focus on making wraps so we incorporated this by making Forest School pizzas using foraged wild garlic.
In order to cook them the children lit fires using Dragon Sneezes.
Everyone agreed they were absolutely delicious!
Elsewhere we made ladders, crafted medalions, moved piles of wood chips over the site, build dens, tried new ziplines, built obstacle courses and made a mini Giants Causeway from all the stumps lying around.
To round off our lovely sessions we had a mug of hot chocolate and then shared our favourite memories of our time at Forest School.
We have had a super time outside with your children, the progress with their skills, teamwork, independence and resilience has been enormous and we hope you that you can see that too in them. Forest School at Arunside for Year 2 may have finished for now but there are plenty of opportunities for your families to spend time outside and explore the wonderful world around us.
