Problem Solving and Teamwork in Forest School

Reception and Year 1 have been very lucky to have had some bright blue skies and sunny weather over the past few weeks for their Forest School adventures.

With Christmas approaching, we thought it would be a good idea to return to the fairy realm to help our fairy friends stay warm over the Christmas holidays. We decided to help them build winter houses just in case there are some frosty mornings and evenings over the Christmas break.

As a group, we had to think of different ideas of how to build our winter houses and find ways to solve any problems that might have come our way when building them. At the end of our sessions, we reviewed how well our approaches worked and what we can work on next time. We also worked on our teamwork skills as we worked together in groups, with Year 1 also taking on leadership roles and developing leadership skills.
