Even big people like to play in the woods

Posted by on February 13, 2014

Thank you to everyone who came along to Barnsley Teaching School Alliance Forest School taster day today. It was bitter cold this morning but hot soup and warm bread at lunchtime warmed us up ready for the afternoon. Mrs Stockdale and myself had a lovely day getting to know people and sharing ideas for activities outdoors. We hope we gave you some ideas to use in your settings as well as giving a little insight into the Forest Schools ethos.

    Thank You for a fab day Gilly and Wendy! It was great to get lots of ideas in the forest and to see how much children can stretch their imaginations outside. Than You for all the simple and fantastic ideas that we can now rake back to school and use. I loved how you hook your children into the forest with the dragon and brackets … Fab idea! Going to try it!! Thanks again to everyone for fab day and for warming us up over lunch 🙂

    Thank you for such a wonderful day. I really enjoyed all the exciting activities we took part in and can’t wait to get started back at school. I m going to start building up natural collections this week. The children were so interested when I explained what I had been doing. The photos are great! Also thanks for providing such a wonderful lunch it was greatly appreciated, especially the soup and warm roll. I couldn.t believe how quickly the day went, you were both so enthusiastic about what you were doing. Looking forward to attending another day with you.

    Many thanks, Angela
