Littleham Primary School children took time out of their half-term holiday to learn outdoor skills, including building a fire and using it to cook sausages.

Over the course of the two-day event, held at a forest school site within school grounds, they also spent time making bird feeders and performing a range of art and craft activities.

Head of key stage two Sarah Padbury said: “At the forest school, the children learnt about team building, co-operation and all of those life skills which are invaluable.

“They were enthusiastic and keen to come to school, even during the holidays, and are hoping that it will be repeated during the next school holidays.

“They were also delighted with bird feeders they made. We are very fortunate that our school grounds are fantastic and provide an opportunity to hold these events.”
