Bodenham Arboretum trip

On Wednesday, Grasshoppers went on their class trip to Bodenham Arboretum, in Kidderminster.

Our day began with a guided tour of the arboretum with Sandra, Forest School leader. She talked to the children about all the different species of trees, some native and some non-native. We continued our tour with a visit to the working farm, which sits in the middle of the arboretum. The children enjoyed looking at all the animals. We looked at the old and new barns and Sandra talked about how farming methods have changed over the years.

We then walked over to the Forest School site for a session there. The children had a wonderful range of activities to choose from. Den building, bug hunting, clay modelling, weaving, natural printing with leaves, mud kitchen and rope climbing. They also toasted bread on the camp fire and had it with jam or honey from Sandra’s bees. After our session, we sat around the fire pit and had our lunch.

After lunch, we said goodbye to Sandra and went on our own walk before heading back to the coach.

We really enjoyed our day!
