Year 4 prepare for the Bushcraft residential with Forest School

Published on 20/05/19

As part of their thematic learning topic ‘Scavengers and Settlers’ and to prepare for the Bushcraft residential, 4B started a four week forest school unit.

The children were thrilled to be back at forest school with the amazing Mrs Bicknall, who encouraged them to forage for edible plants and find the resources needed to build a rudimentary shelter, just as a hunter gatherer might have done in the past. Collaboration, initiative and perseverance were definitely needed as the shelter building was not easy! They are really looking forward to the next session to build upon what they learnt.
