This was our first visit to Forest School this year and it was a busy day. The weather was really kind to us, it was quite warm and definitely didn't feel like January. We did lots of jobs around the site. The adults fixed the canopy cover after it got ripped in the recent windy weather. The rope swing log broke so we found a new log and fixed it. Mrs Matthews and Miss Godsall tried it out before we went on it, to make sure it was safe.
We noticed that the birds had eaten all of our bird food so we made some new bird feeders using vegetable fat, bird seed and pine cones. We have hung them around the site and next week we want to see if the birds have found them.
We also enjoyed the mud kitchen today and made good use of the new equipment we had taken with us. Some of us found some reusable paper and we enjoyed drawing with our friends.
What a busy day!
Next week we would like to do more climbing.
