Forest School Session
The Head of Outdoor Education at Kent College welcomed Year 2 students from Capel Primary for a forest school session.
The aim of the project was to give external primary school children the opportunity to use Kent College's facilites and enhance their curriculum using resources that would not be available in their own school.
The opportunity was identified by the Heads from both schools.
The schools already had established links from Science collaborations.
Kent College's Forest School was used on the day of the visit.
Mrs Carol Davison, Head of Outdoor Education, ran the sessions with assistance from Capel's staff.
The students made wooden pendants, mud faces on trees, designed a picture out of natural materials and made patterns on cottons from leaves.
It was a very enjoyable experience all round.
30 boys and girls in Year 2
This collaboration will continue next year with the aim of using Kent College's onsite confidence course.
