Year 1 Forest School

Year 1 have been really enjoying their forest school sessions. We’ve learnt how to start a fire without using matches (and that this can only be done in Forest School!). We set fire to some buildings that we made out of cardboard, to see how quickly fire spreads and also how a brick building wouldn’t burn so quickly. We’ve also been doing our own puppet shows, playin in the hammocks, digging and bird watching. Here are a few photos for you to see.

Year 1 Trip to Strangers’ Hall

Year 1 had a fabulous time at Strangers’ Hall, participating in a variety of activities relating to the Great Fire of London. The children were able to handle artifacts and find out what they were used for. They took part in a brilliant drama activity reenacting how the fire spread from house to house and how it was eventually stopped. They were also able to spend time looking around Strangers’ Hall and pointing out fire risks in each room.
