The first week of Forest School for the Year Five’s saw the class familiarising themselves with the area and the safety rules. Our learning this week was based on our Harry Potter themed topic – Expelliarmus!
The children were given the opportunity to explore the forest school area and notice any changes since their last visit. They were imagining that they were in the Forbidden Forest and needed to make dens to shelter from the magical creatures by using the timber hitch to secure the rope. The children were also given the opportunity to create their own Harry Potter stones as well as creating the Deathly Hallows sign using natural materials. We finished off our session with some hot chocolate, a biscuit and a reflection on our first session. What a Harry Potter-tastic first session – we cannot wait for our next session!
