Take A Risk

Posted by on March 27, 2014

Today we had visitors from other schools come to play in the woods. We were hosting a taster day looking at the benefits of taking risks and the forest school ethos. We thought about how important communication and positive interactions are to develop self confidence and self esteem, and how this supports children to take risks.

Thank you to everyone who came, I hope you had as much fun as I did, and I hope you were able to take something away with you. Thank you for taking a risk and getting stuck into everything, your enthusiasm was great.

I think one of my favourite parts of today was watching how you worked out how to turn the tarpaulin over without anyone stepping off of it – it illustrated how important communication is and how different people take on different roles to complete tasks and solve problems. This itself means you have to take risks, especially if you don’t know the others in the group.

Here are some pictures from the day.
