Year 2 Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday Forest School 15.02.18
Super stars: Hannah in 2S for being very brave and Joshua in 2A for really getting stuck in this week and using his initiative.
This week was the final Forest School session for Year 2. To celebrate Shrove Tuesday the children enjoyed cooking and eating pancakes outdoorss. The children collected kindling sticks, using the size of their hand as the measurement. We discussed the dangers and the children were able to come up with their own risk assessment to keep everyone and everything safe. We lit the fire using a fire steel and we waited until the sticks began to turn white. This signalled time to cook. We cooked and ate Scotch pancakes - yummy!
The fire was put out and after it had cooked we discovered the wood had turned to charcoal. The children were able to tell me all about Ash Wednesday, so we used the charcoal and ash to make the sign of the cross around the woodland. Each child thought of a wonderful prayer to end the session too. Well done Year 2. You have been fantastic Forest Schoolers!
