Asby Endowed School

Wilderness Workshop

The children have had another fabulous day with Wilderness Outdoor Education and Shining Stars nursery. This time in woods in our village.


As it was raining the children helped to put up shelters before we did anything it else. Then hot chocolate was made on the fire whilst the children hunted for sticks for crafts.

The children had to work together to tie their sticks into triangles to make a Christmas tree shape. Then they wove wool around to finish the piece.


After a hot lunch at school the children returned to the woods. This time they helped to make Canadian campfire apple crumble. It was cooked on the fire whilst they did a nature hunt.


Then it was time to cook s’mores! Yummy!


Finally the children learned about the 3 kinds of mushroom that were growing in the woods.
