Ben’s Hayfever Forest School Poem

On Wednesday 22nd of June, class 6 had their lesson of forest school. I did not enjoy it very much, having hay fever sucks. At the start we played a game at the end, we played it again. Then we made tree spirits from clay, on the trees they lay. They were supposed to scare people away, so we could come back another day.

Lauren’s Forest School Poem

Shouting at everyone, it was very bossy And he made

When we got there, we played a game called’ 123 where are you’; which was like hide and seek. After that, we made a circle made of sticks to sit inside of.

Through Jamie’s eyes…

On Wednesday, our teacher handcuffed us all and took us away from school. She led us down a path – that led on for about three hours. The path led along a countryside; all we could see was grass and trees. At the end of the path there was a slope that led down to a forest. The forest was dark; because the leaves
