This was our first sesson whittling sticks for our Forest School lesson. The children were given a safety talk before starting and then had the opportunity to have a go themselves. The group had great fun whittling their sticks, using potato peelers. Then when they were able to use them safely, the group used pen knives too.
There was some time at the end of the session for free play. some of the children chose not to have free time and continue to whittle.
