Forest fun for youngsters
PUBLISHED: 13:30 08 May 2012
YOUNGSTERS at Locking Primary School learned about how best to utilise the great outdoors at the last of a series of a forest skills classes on Friday.
The classes have taught them, among other things, how to use a flint to light a fire, use whittling tools and knives and make nettle tea.
On Friday as a treat they made chocolate chip bread and cooked it over a fire they built at the school in Meadow Drive.
Teacher Alison Read said: “The idea is to give the children experience of things that they can use in the outdoors, although obviously the chocolate chip was a bit of an incentive as opposed to what they would find out and about.
“The classes were about confidence-building and working as a team.”
