Forest School, by Miss Jones

What another fabulous day at Forest school. We built farms for Bunce, Boggis and Bean and a home for The Fantastic Mr Fox and his family. The children worked incredibly in teams and were so proud of what they achieved… so were we! Everyone enjoyed toasting marshmallows and warming up after a bit of a rainy start. In the afternoon, the children went on a bug hunt, played some forest games and learnt how to create a spark on the dragon sneeze to light a fire. Well done Year 2… it has been a pleasure to watch your enthusiasm and creativity today!

Year 2 Forest School, by Miss Jones
Date: 21st Oct 2022 @ 3:32pm
What a wonderful way to end our first half term! The children have been delightful and it has been a joy to experience today with them. I am sure they will tell you all of the exciting bits about today but I am truly proud of them. They demonstrated just what sensible, resourceful, respectful and caring Year two’s they are. I tried to capture the magic from behind the camera and the children were most impressed I managed to capture a few dragon sneeze sparks!!!
Thank you Year 2 for a fun Forest day! Have the best half term!
