Y5 Forest School - Blackberries!

Back in Forest School after a 2 year gap this lot knew the format from their days in Y2 but the site and what is growing has changed so there were new things to explore.


They quickly took advantage of the abundance of blackberries and started making inks and potions. They explored some of the other things growing asking if they were poisonous, testing if they make a good colour etc. We had a go at some blackberry tie dye and next week we will look at what other natural things we can use to dye the cloth...


It was lovely to be back in the Forest School area with Y5 - they have matured a lot since Y2 and the addition of new faces has made them alot calmer... I am looking forward to all the fun we will get up to this year!
