This term Cherry’s learning journey is ‘Plants and Growing’, so the children had a go at spotting as many of the spring flowers as they could and recording them in pairs on their ‘plant identification’ along the way to the woods.

They found bluebells, violets, celandines, primroses, wood anemones and many more!

The impact of Forest School can be seen through the skills, tools used, art and craft activities, observations and knowledge of the fruit, plants trees in relation to the seasons and the skills involved in learning how to play Forest School games.

In the woods, Cherry class made some beautifully creative flowers of their own, inspired by what they had spotted.

Some had a go at creating ‘Green Man’ faces on trees with some clay they had dug from the ground.

They balanced on the slack line, swung on the hammock and had a good explore in the mud of the stream. And were great at making up their own rhythm patterns with sticks together!
