P5 Forest Schools Week 1

In session 1 we took inspiration from some of John Muir’s quotes-

 

1.In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

2.Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.

3.Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

4.Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

5.Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

P4/3 Forest School Diary

Week 1- Back to the forest for some and a new adventure for others. The pupils had a great time getting to know their surroundings and making pictures on the forest floor.

Week 2- Lots of bug hunters finding different creepy crawlies in the forest today. Well done to everyone working well in their teams to make brilliant shelters.

Week 3- Not the best weather but never mind, hot chocolate in out shelter makes everything better!

Week 4- We used a bow saw today to cut ‘wookies’ (wood cookies)

Week 5- Don’t get stuck in the spider’s web or you might get caught! P4/3 had to use their balance and ninja moves to get across our giant spider’s web. We were all impressed by the flames our fire had and very happy to toast a marshmallow or two when they died down.
