Elephants- Forest School
6 May 2021 (by Miss Rowland (Elephants))
Elephant class have had a fantastic afternoon at Forest School and we would like to say a massive thank you to Miss Thompson and Laura.
We started the session with a quick visit to the animal park, we especially liked meeting the new little chicks!
After we went to the woodland. We learnt how to be safe in the fire circle and what is needed to make a fire.
Then, one group stayed at the fire chopping vegetables for our soup, whilst the other group went foraging for nettles and dandelions ready to add to our soup.
When we returned we mixed all the ingredients together and let it simmer. When it was time to eat it we were so impressed! The soup was delicious- some of us even had triple helpings!
Throughout the afternoon we also identified the five wild plants that we have been learning about in class- nettle plant, dandelions, grape hyacinth, blubells and lesser celandines.
We finished the afternoon exploring and playing in the woodland.
