Another very cold day so we all had to wrap up warm for our trip to forest school. We had tools to use at forest school this week and some of the children got to use a small hack saw to cut wood and others used the loppers to cut small branches, great listening and following of instructions. The children had to wear a glove on the hand that supports the small piece of wood they are cutting, they are shown how to stand safely when using the tools, lots of concentrating and then sudden excitement when they realise they have sawn through the piece of wood they were cutting.
Ropes were very popular again, the children love using the ropes to pull leaves along to create a path, and they also used the ropes to pull themselves up the slope, then having lots of fun rolling back down the slope. Lots of very muddy, but very happy forest school butterflies.
