Thursday was our fantastic Bushcraft day at Barnsdale Woods near Rutland Water. The day was packed full of learning valuable outdoor skills. Take a look...


Here we used knives to carve wood. We made the wood smooth by shaving off the outer layer and then shaped the end into a point. We then decorated our carved wood to make a wood-elf!


We learnt how to make sparks to start a fire!

We took part in den building. We learnt how to select appropriate wood and how to build a secure structure. We all did a brilliant job!

At lunchtime, we had a picnic outdoors, followed by marshmallow-cooking by the fire pit! Our day was truly memorable and we would like to say a massive thank you to Rutland Water's education team for arranging such an amazing experience.
