Firpark go to the forest
Forest School training in the local woods
- Mrs Hall, Firpark Secondary School
1.3 are very fortunate to be going out with a Forest School Leader for 12 sessions throughout this year, designed to help them to explore and discover the woods, as well as learn new skills.
The class had their first session at Dalziel Estate on Friday and had a wonderful time in the outdoors.
Our Forest School Leader, Alan Kain, taught us about basic safety rules to keep us safe and then showed us how to build and light a fire. The fire was meant to keep us warm, however it was such a warm day that it actually helped to keep the midges away!
The group then had some time to explore and thoroughly enjoyed climbing trees, terrifying Mrs Hall!
We all had a fantastic time, with lots of laughs with Alan, and are really looking forward to next week’s session.
Many thanks to the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership for funding our Forest School sessions, and to Karen Dobbins for all of her help in organising everything for us.
