We had the BEST morning at forest school today. We practised our knot tying skills and then got busy making our waterproof shelters. We worked as a team to make our shelters strong, stable and big enough to fit in our entire team. Mrs Morris then threw buckets of water over our shelter and we all kept dry! We then gathered around the fire circle for toasted marshmallows!
What an AMAZING afternoon in maple class.
After a half term of learning about The Great Fire of London, we had some VERY special visitors this afternoon. We spoke to Thirsk Fire Service about their job, how they keep us safe and how fire fighting has changed from 1666 to now. We got to sit inside the fire engine, listen to the siren and even watch them put out a real fire. We were so excited and engrossed in the whole experience!
Here’s what some children said:
”This is the best day in my whole life”
”I’m going to remember this forever”
I am so proud of what the children have learnt this half term, their knowledge is incredible! I can’t wait for the next learning mission! ❤️
