For our Forest School sessions, we work with Street Country Forest School. Street Country gives children the opportunity to explore, discover and create in the natural environment of the woodland. Activities include discovering wildlife, woodland craft, tool use, den building and camp fire cooking. It enables children to connect with the natural world and learn new skills and develop self confidence.
It is based in North Bersted, Bognor Regis and Ruth Street also offers an after school club on Thursdays.
We have been enjoying our time at Forest School.
There have been lots of different activities for us to try: den building, bug hunting, clay, making name badges using a palm drill, collecting items from around the forest with different textures, learning about the wildlife around us.
We have made homes for hedgehogs, tasted honey and identified plants we have seen.
