Mapping our Forest School area

Our first session with Year 1 at The Manor C of E Primary school was full of fun and excitement.  After getting ready into our wellies and outdoor clothes we went out into the Forest School area which is located on the school site.  We spent some time in the fire circle discussing the forest school motto, and playing a few name games.  The children were then asked to use their super senses and explore the site, taking mental pictures of all the things they could see.  Then in small groups we created a map of our Forest School area using natural resources..  Some of the groups added amazing detail to the map and even added extra items using their imagination..  Brilliant!
