The children in Kingfishers have enjoyed their first Forest Schools at Elvaston Castle this afternoon.
During their first session, led by Jackie and Mrs. Nicholson, the children worked together, in mixed teams, on some team building activities. This included making a basic shelter.
Over the term the children will be learning how to tie knots before using these to build some more robust and watertight shelters.
There are some more photos on the school's main blog: https://westoncofe.wordpress.com/2018/04/19/☀%EF%B8%8F-forest-schools-for-kingfishers/
