The sun shone for the last of the Forest Schools Sessions for Year 1! The pupils this week enjoyed toasting marshmallows around the campfire (which they lit!), eating the marshmallows (of course) and making journey sticks! As usual, they had a brilliant time learning in the fresh air and came back to school in dry clothes (for a change!)!!
