Week 1 12th June
This week it was the Badger's first week in 'Forest School' having a go at some of the new skills that Mrs Goldsworthy has been learning on her training. The weather was much kinder this week, dry with sunshine peeking through the canopy. The children learnt how to do knots - Timber Hitch, Loop Knot and a Slip Knot. Once they felt confident they were given the challenge of building themselves a shelter to keep dry.
There was lots of great team work to help make sure everyone could do the knots as the children had to use each knot they had been taught in their shelter. Many of the children showed great perseverance and determination to complete their shelter.
Have a look at some photos to see the children's knots and dens.
