Willow and Rowan class were very busy in Forest School this term. They helped to plant the new tree that Mrs Franks gifted us as her leaving present - a new witches tree is about to grow!

We looked at different bugs in the area, sang a song and learned some worm facts. We talked about which Forest School animals are mammals, tying in with their classroom learning. I got my Kelly Kettle out, which looks a bit like a magic kettle to the children as the fire sits inside the kettle and the water in the outside compartment. We learned about finding dry sticks and building a small fire. We boiled the water and enjoyed a hot squash on a cold day! Our final week saw an early pancake day - the children prepared the apple pancake mixture (see below for recipe) and helped to fry them over the fire. Most children really enjoyed these! 

1 grated apple

1 cup flour 

1 cup filled with 1 egg and oat milk 

Enjoy halt term and nature.
