Forest school launches at Ashill Primary School, Ilminster
FOREST school is now up and running for pupils in Ilminster.
Kelly Napper and Pamela Mount offered forest school sessions over the Easter holidays and they are now being offered as part of the school day for students at Ashill Primary School.
“All the children and adults had a fabulous time learning new skills and creating items from natural resources with one child saying ‘I want to start the day again’," said Pamela.
"We have been amazed by the wonderful behaviour of all of the children and their enthusiasm and friendship.
"The children enjoyed getting mucky - the muddier the better for some.”
Children covered a wide range of activities, including using tools and hammers, building bug hotels, making weaving frames from scratch, learning how to tie knots, nail art and clay printing hedgehogs.
Pam and Kelly will also be offering sessions over the summer holidays.
A spokesperson for The Redstart Learning Partnership said: "We are absolutely delighted to see and hear all about the fantastic forest school developments at Ashill. It is such a wonderful opportunity for the children."
