Den building and treasure hunting have taken over the timetable at a Nailsea school.

Children from St Francis Primary School, in Station Road, are enjoying weekly forest school sessions to enable them to learn more about the environment.

Pupils have made dens and hunted for natural wooden treasures during the classes.

A school spokesman said: “Children at St Francis have been enjoying weekly forest school sessions this term as part of their broad and balanced curriculum

“The children have relished the opportunity to develop their team work, communication, independence and thinking skills as well as enjoying the wonderful outdoor environment.”

One child said: “I like building dens because we work as a team.

Another pupil added: “It has made our class’s teamwork stronger with everyone, not just our friends.”
