Exploring what Forest Schools is and can be……

A group of 10 children have been exploring what it means to go to Forest Schools and what sorts of things they would like to do when they are there.
We played some games to get to know each other better, came up with some ideas of how we think we should behave and also some ideas of what we would like to do.
Then the fun started……
We got to explore, use our imaginations and invent games using things that we found!
