A mess or is it a nest?

This week we see Year 1 starting to apply their stick safety training and knowledge of our site, during a nest building challenge.

In class we did a quick recap of this terms sessions, helping the children to recall and understand how we use our Forest School site. Then a very lively discussion took place about nest building creatures, the children had a wealth of ideas from ants to ostriches and many beasts in between. They were encouraged to decide on their creature first as this would dictate the material, size and location chosen for their build.
