Classroom In The Woods

21st November 2016

As part of our topic on Invaders, KS2 went to the Classroom in the Woods. Miss Green’s and Miss Davenport’s class’ focus was Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We participated in a variety of activities including:

  • Building boats from wood and string, which we floated down the river.
  • Foraged for our own food-finding sloes, blackberries and raspberries.
  • Building shelters from logs and branches we found in the forest
  • Plucked, cooked and ate pigeon that had been shot earlier in the day.

Mr Wooliss’ class participated in a variety of activities including:

  • Felling trees and constructing tents using limited resources.
  • Created tessellations and oil lamps from clay.
  • Learning military tactics such as camp placements.
