The temperature had changed, therefore the first item on the agenda was to get the fire built and lit. Once sat snugly around the fire the group spent some time concentrating on the sounds of the fire crackles and circular breathing as part of a mindfulness technique.
The next task was to complete the woven panel the group had been working on after which they had a snack and climb amongst the willow trees.
Everyone came back to sit around the fire and take a look at some mini beasts which included a centipede and a dead frog!
It was time to put the Kelly Kettle on and eat some lunch followed by a hot chocolate and a toasted marshmallow.
Spikey the Hedgehog who has been staying with Forest school for a week needed a home as did a small troll (name unknown) - The group set to work ensuring these creature would be safe tucked up in their homes by making them beds from leaves and doors with sticks.
We went on a march playing a game of animal relay and 'Spot and STOP' where the group used adjectives and 'WOW' words in their descriptions of interesting things they'd spotted around the field.
