Bows & Arrows Update

Sycamore had their final Forest School session on Wednesday 28th March and, although the weather was not its best, had a brilliant afternoon in the school grounds.

Using their bows and arrows that they’d cleverly made in the previous weeks, they were given the challenge of ‘catching their food’ – an easter egg balanced on a table!

The children had some target practice to start with and perfected their techniques with their bows and arrows and then lined up to take a shot! Amy Farrell and Ashten were very quick to win their eggs and Mr Procter managed to win one too – using Kai’s bow! The children were so resilient in their efforts to hit their eggs and didn’t give up easily!

While they weren’t using their bows and arrows, they played on the trim trail, made dens or finished off their arrows in the hall with Mrs Filkin and Mr Ottaway.

At the end, the children discovered the Easter Bunny had visited the trim trail and had to hunt down the Haribo he had dropped…

It’s been such a great term of Forest school and Sycamore have behaved brilliantly meaning we were able to get a lot done!

Thank you so much to Mr Ottaway, Mr Groves and Ms James for coming to help us this week – and all the other parents who have helped out so much this term. You’ve made it possible to get so much out of each session for the children.
