Y2 Explorers

Year 2 was set a Forest School challenge to discover 4 significant explorers.  The children began by finding the explorer cards hidden in the Forest School and then we played games to help us learn the explorer facts.  


We then imagined what it would be like to be an explorer and discussed what equipment we would need to build a shelter.  


The children made some awesome shelters and sang the songs they'd learnt that day with the Ugandan choir, whilst they worked.


Some of the children chopped the fire wood and then we all toasted marshmallows and drank a well deserved hot chocolate. Yummy!
