St Mary’s Forest School
Year 6 enjoyed the first Forest School Session at school. After scavenging and collecting twigs and branches, they then created their template for their own Christmas tree.
Part of the requirement within forest schools is using tools. Therefore, we had saws and drills as well as pure brawn! After a demonstration in safe use of tools, where to put hands and feet, the children cut the branches to the correct size and shapes for the trees.
We had our central stem using reclaimed wood and a metal rod and had to drill small holes into the wood to fit them through. Each child had their turn and created some fantastic trees which can then be decorated in time for Christmas!
