Forest school stay and play

IMG 5254

It was an exciting day in Pre-Prep when parents of our Nursery and Reception children were invited in to the children’s Thursday afternoon Forest School session for stay and play.

Led by our wonderfully creative Nursery teacher and Forest School leader Ms Ramli, Forest School has become a highly popular part of the weekly curriculum. Set in the woodland at the front of school, a forest trail leads from mud kitchen past a campfire area, to a den-building and tree climbing area. Every week, rain or shine, the children can be found there exploring, experimenting and taking their learning into the great outdoors.

In anticipation of their parents’ visit, the children had created their own bunting by smashing berries and flowers and leaves onto triangles of cotton, extracting the juices and colours to give a colourful tie-dye effect. The bug-hunting materials had been laid out alongside the tree and plant identification kits, and a campfire had been prepared on which to bake the banana and chocolate treats.

As the parents arrived, some children had scampered off to the mud kitchen, others to see what mini-beasts they could unearth in the dank corners and under the logs. The ‘flower crown’ activity led by Reception teacher Mrs Boote proved especially popular with both children and parents.

The whole occasion was a wonderful opportunity for the children to share something of their Forest School days with their parents.
