Being in the outdoors has always been an important part of my life, whether that be taking part in outdoor activities or spending time appreciating the amazing and natural world we live in. I have spent much of my working life helping children and young people to understand how important respecting and enjoying the world outside, Away from St Paul's I spend as much time as I can mountain biking, climbing and walking as well as supporting environmental projects which encourage sustainability for our environment.
Children in Oaks class have been creating maps using natural resources, some were even 3d! We have also been toasting Marsh mellows and learning how to be safe around fire.
The children have been working hard in Forest School, creating tree cookies, building hedgehog shelters and learning how to use a flint and steel. What a fantastic job they have done.
Children from Year 3 came out to Forest School to build shelters for themselves and Hansel and Gretal. We thought about how it would feel to be lost in the woods and what was important when we are sheltering from the weather.
