Knife safety and respect

We used knives this morning. Some of the children said they were a little scared. We talked about this and explored what was scary and also that they didn’t have to use them. When we went to the woods we did our tool talk. It explains how we use the knife safely. Everyone wanted to try after the tool talk. I was impressed with how they started to develop the skill of whittling wood!

Forest School Practitioner

I started work as an SEND teacher and I... scratch that...As one of the children once told me "You're just Gilly who plays out with us and helps us to be safe." I'm sometimes a pirate, sometimes a Viking, sometimes the crazy story teller but I always aim to make it fun. I'm just Gilly and Forest School is my jam!
