Exploring Camouflage at Bladons Forest School

Forest School sessions at Bladon House School allows the young people to explore the outdoor classroom freely, to encompass the benefits that come from learning through playing outdoors.

Last week Formal Lower and Upper School explored methods of camouflage and took part in a task called “Hiding hands”. The students and staff were challenged to work in pairs taking it in turns to blend their hands to the forest floor using mud mixture and leaf litter.

Allocating time for outdoor play has been shown to improve concentration during class time and encourages learners to develop a stronger relationship with the outdoors and nature.
