Scafell Outdoor Learning

Scafell have enjoyed a fantastic first lesson of the year in our woodland area this week with our Forest School Leaders from Barnardo’s.  We began this session by introducing our forest schools’ code: look after myself; look after each other; look after the woodland.  Next, we identified the boundary of our outdoor environment before embarking on some team games and challenges.

Our next task involved searching the forest for anything that might create marks on our small pieces of cloth.  We were surprised by the range of colours we discovered; including bright emeralds and deep crimsons! These were used to create colour studies, prints using hammers and compositions using only natural materials found across the woodland floor.

Can’t wait for next week’s session… Den building!
