Spear-making in forest school

Today we made spears using long sticks that we found in the forest school area. We used billhooks to sharpen the end of the stick and finished it off by whittling with a knife or a potato peeler. We then decorated the spear by plaiting string to make rope and sticking it onto the spear. I think you’ll agree they look very effective. We then practised throwing the spears, aiming for hoops and balloons.
