Reception in Forest School.
We had a wonderful afternoon in Forest School today. We had great fun kicking leaves and balancing on the stepping stones in the mud! The children looked at the different changes we could see such as the leaves changing colour and falling from the trees. We used colour charts to hunt for leaves which were the same colour as our colour charts. We talked about keeping safe in Forest School by looking carefully where we walked, not picking things up which could be dangerous, not putting things in our mouths and moving carefully around nettles and tree stumps. The children followed the rules very well, I was very impressed with our first visit.
In the coming months, we are looking to develop the land next to the school field into a forest school. This will entail developing the land and preparing it for use in school time and also for activities in the wider community. We have recently had a successful community day with some volunteers doing some hard work for the day, along with taking part in some forest activities. Many thanks to all the paretns and staff who came along to help, and to the pupils past and present for all their help.
Below is a questionnaire for you to fill in regarding the forest school.
