Hello, my name is Zac Harris. I am a member of 4EC, we do Forest School on a Thursday afternoon with Miss Hughes. Forest school isn’t quite so easy for me because I have to go down in a wheelchair. In school I use my walker but the ground in Forest School is too tricky for me to walk on. When I’m in Forest School I need help from my teaching assistant Miss Allman, and sometimes Mr Jones helps her out with me too.
I really enjoy Forest School, being in my wheelchair does not stop me joining in! I have been pond dipping, I’ve made an animal habitat and I’ve even dyed clothes with rose petals. My favourite thing I’ve ever done was splash in mud; I’d never done it before. Mr Jones and Miss Allman held me up whilst I stood in a sandpit full of mud, when I began splashing hard suddenly a toad jumped out, it scared me!
I doesn’t matter what you can and can’t do, you’ve just always got to give it a go!!!
