The children were taking part in one of the Forest Explorers days, run by the rangers at Delamere.
Class teacher Kerry Griffiths, praised the team of rangers who create bespoke learning days for local schools. She said: “Peter, our ranger, was fantastic with the children. He adapted the day to build on our previous learning and to incorporate a range of activities to develop knowledge and physical skills. As a school, we know it’s vital that children continue to learn from and within the real, outdoor world, especially as children are spending increasing amounts of time in the virtual world”.
After hearing the story of stickman, the children searched for resources to make their own stick-people and build leafy, mossy homes for them.
They then followed the stickman trail, which is ideally suited for young children and has lots of interactive activities to do along the way.
Their final task was to build nests by finding leaves, moss and sticks just like birds would do themselves.
