Today we had our second Forest Schools session with Sarah and Matt.
We warmed up by playing Winter Dragons. To be the dragon, we had to show Sarah our scary dragon faces and do the loudest dragon possible. This game helps us to warm up our bodies before we do any other activities.
Today, we split up into groups and went creeping and crawling in the Secret Garden to hunt for bugs. We didn’t know what we were going to find. Sarah and Matt told us how to collect the bugs carefully using some special bug pots. We had to look high and low but we were able to find lots of bugs.
We found bugs that we knew like spiders and woodlice but we also found bugs that we weren’t sure of. Sarah and Matt showed us how to use some special identification charts so we could tell what type of bug that they were.
After that, we started to hunt and forage around the Secret Garden to see what we could use to make a potion. Some of us made magic potions with magical spells and some of us make special perfumes that we could take home to our families.
Forest Schools is our favourite activity ever! We can’t wait for our next session!
