Holiday Clubs!

Brand new holiday club!

This Easter holidays we had not one, two or three holiday clubs running … we had FOUR! Primary Forest school are now running four amazing holiday clubs across the South West of England at Axminster, Churchfield, Radipole and now Burton Primary School.

Our brand new holiday club in Christchurch, Dorset at Burton Primary School started this Easter holidays with lots of excited new children ready for a fun packed day of activities.

We enjoyed a mixture of forest school activities throughout the day, including natural crafts, bug hunting and even some great tree climbing! The children made clay hedgehogs, fairy doors and loved making hapa zome! Hapa zome literally means leaf dying, it is a Japanese printmaking technique that uses the natural pigments in the leaves and flowers to produce colourful and detailed prints, and as you can see by the photos they really are incredible!

The children’s favourite time of the day was building their dens to eat their lunch in them, we were so pleased to see so many of them making friends with new children from different schools. Making dens is such a great way to encourage children’s imagination as well as teamwork and communication skills.

In the afternoons we learnt how to make a fire, using flint and steel and even cooked on the fire enjoying pizza wraps one day and smores the other! As well as fire lighting we also used tools, the children used safe practice whilst using axes and knifes to prepare and cut the wood for the fire.

We had some great feedback from both parents and children over the first holidays, and Miss Tabor and Miss Gale cannot wait to see everyone again in May holidays!
