Students from Year 6 visited Forest School as an end of Year 6 celebration trip. They visited over two days and they had the most fantastic time.
They completed a range of activities including toasting marshmallows and making s'mores, fire striking, den building, sawing and drilling medallions, playing in the mud kitchen, creating an Andy Goldsworthy art project and making elder bead bracelets. These activities were carried out by fully qualified Level 3 Forest School Leaders with risk assessments, protective gloves provided and safety measures put in place, so the children could learn advanced tools and fire making skills in a controlled, safe environment.
Hayley and Sammi (Whatever the Weather Forest School) ensured the day ran smoothly and offered the students fantastic opportunities to play and learn in a calm and rural area. Hayley said:
‘I was so impressed with their behaviour and enthusiastic attitude when taking part in the activities. Their practical skills, artistic creativity and ability to persevere learning new tools/ crafts, were over and above. They really did you proud representing High Cliff Academy school and are a credit to the teachers and school.'
