Pond Dipping & Making Dens

On Wednesday, Beech class had their second Forest School session of the year. It was beautifully sunny but there was a chilly wind. The children were lucky enough to have enough adults to go pond dipping for the first time and were very successful! They caught loads of newts – some of them quite huge – and lots of dragon-fly larvae which the children were not so sure on! While they weren’t pond dipping, the children made some amazing dens using the tarpaulin. A new favourite game was tug-of-war on the field which they got very competitive over.

Well done, Beech Class, your behaviour was amazing and it was a really fun afternoon. Next week, we are hoping to have a fire so any extra pairs of hands would be lovely.
