Outdoor Woodland Learning

As always Class 1 & 2 enjoyed their Outdoor Woodland Learning Session last Friday. Our learning opportunities started by risk assessing – identifying possible changes and new dangers in the woodland environment due to the gale force winds we had the previous week, as one of our large trees had been partially blown down; then we chose our learning from lots of options such as mud kitchen; digging –  learning to use real equipment safely and investigating the soil for what we could find; gardening – weeding ready to plant bulbs next week; tree climbing & rope swing – working out how to take turns fairly;  den building – with a camp fire and learning about and role playing how we can make fire by rubbing two sticks together; and one child even initiated and completed independently created a mini “castle” by using an A Frame technique secured deep into the muddy soft ground as the basis for his construction! Wow!
