It has been the turn of Y 3 for forest school during this half term. We have used a fallen pine tree to make a shelter with the children sawing the branches off for us to use, learnt how to make a fire( more of that next week), had a go at flint napping to make hand axes, played Eagle eye and this week we tackled the subject of food before learning and practicing knife skills ahead of next weeks project.
Food week can be difficult, but as ever the children listened, asked excellent questions and treated the animal with respect in a calm and quiet way. Two rabbits were skinned and prepared for cooking. Those who wanted to get involved did so. Later in the day, after the rabbits were cooked in a Dutch oven, those who wanted to try it, did. They really enjoyed the food, asking for more. I was very proud of our Y3 s and how they reacted.
