The last two weeks of Forest School have been focused on food! Week 4 began with a game of 20/20 tag. Chloe enjoyed hiding in the forest and hung around on the edges while player after player ran to home inside the circle. When she was finally spotted and turfed out of her hiding place to be chased through the trees to home, her face was a picture of happiness. Nothing quite like running through a forest to make a girl like Chloe come alive!
Next we needed a fire so we had a session on fire lighting safety and all the group had a turn practising lighting some cotton wool in a metal dish until everyone had been successful. This took a while. Using the fire lighters is not easy and it takes a long time for the sparks to catch and light up.
As agreed afterr the success of the pizzas, everyone had brought sausages and buns to make hot dogs, so we needed some skewers to cook the sausages on. We were given some loppers and Katy gave a talk on how to carry and use them safely and we went off in search of hazel to cut.
Then the sausages were placed on the skewers and put over the fire to cook. The hot dogs were tasty, but the best bit was the Krispy Kreme donuts that Gulsoom had brought to share.
