Woodpecker's Forest School Session 3 -19/11/21

This week at Forest School, Woodpecker Class worked on their team building. We played ‘Hungry Birds.’ In this challenge, the class were split into two teams. Each team had to work together to find the different coloured worms hidden all over the forest to match the colours on their sticks. Every member had the team had to find one worm to add to their collection so children had to work together in order to complete the challenge.

Some children this week were really excited to create natural photo frames. They were extremely focused when learning new knots. We used clove hitches to attach the sticks together and square lashings to ensure the sticks were as tightly tied as possible. It took lots of focus and determination.

 We had the chance to explore some new dens and create our own.
