Forest School activities at home

For anyone wishing to have a go at Forest School type activities at home.  I have attached below 4 documents:

- a list of ideas that you can do indoors

- a list of ideas that you can do outdoors

- KS1 Wild bingo board 

- KS2 Wild bingo board

If you complete a full house on the bingo board, you will receive a certificate! If you take photos as evidence, they can be e-mailed to Miss Edge via the school office.
