OVER a hundred children turned out to learn bush and survival skills as part of half-term workshops at the Cotswold Forest School near South Cerney.

The workshops included, fire starting, cooking and catapult making and were enjoyed by children of all ages from seven to 14.

John-Charles Kimberley (aka Jono), who owns the school, said: "Children really enjoyed the tomahawk and catapult making. We had a lot of children turn up and it was really, really fantastic, it was a lot of fun. We also got really good feedback from parents."

The school will be holding more workshops during the Easter half term.
