Finchley class had their first Forest School session today and it was truly amazing!! Every child took part in making a Bender, which is a den made out of willow.
We spent the morning making the base strong and stable, so it will stay up for us to work in over the next few weeks. After lunch, we put the ‘ribs’ around the sides and increase strength and once they had finished they chose to decorate and add furniture!
At the end, we had a circle to talk about what we were proud of and how we helped others in our groups. It was decided that we definitely could not have done it without all the members in our group.
We are already super excited for next week as we are will be carving spoons and making wind chimes.
