School council members in years 3-6 spent a morning in the forest. At the end of the session some of the children chose to share their 'special forest spot' with the group, and discuss ideas for how Forest School could develop further at Belmont School.

The children explored the different forest paths, and completed challenges along the way. They took risks and persevered to climb trees, roll down hills and make a tree swing!

The children had a fantastic time at Forest school today. Firstly they worked as a team to gather different sized sticks for our campfire. After learning about how to be safe around the fire the children took turns to add the sticks.




Next the children used tools to slice bananas, push in different ingredients and wrap them in tinfoil. The bananas were left to cook in the embers, and once they were ready it was time to eat them. Everyone enjoyed eating in the forest!


Safety around the campfire.
