Forest Schools – Sailing Away

We had a Sail of a Time:

This week at Forest Schools the children were all given the opportunity to explore the forest discovering a multitude of natural materials to design, create and build their very own sail boats. They collected various outdoor materials and tested them to see if they would float before constructing and sailing them off down the river. This was a great learning experience for the children in which they took great delight and pride in. They were so excited to race the boats and to see which was the fastest and if they were able to make it the end without sinking. We will continue this interest and see what other natural materials we can use to construct super models next time at Forest Schools.
