It has been a very busy day in the woods, there has been lots of playing and loads of learning. What I have noticed today is how the children have really listened to adults and other children. I love hearing how they share ideas when they are collaborating.
This afternoon some children from year 4 went to the woods with a group of younger children from the children’s centre. It is amazing to watch how they interact. The older children show such empathy, and are so caring for the younger children. They should be really proud of themselves. They are able to see … Continue reading
What a brilliant morning I had with year 2. We stretched our imagination muscles and went to visit Troll Land. We were on a mission to build new houses for the little people.

This morning was full of magical memories in the woods. I was buzzing, and the other adults were with the children in F2 SJ today. It was one of those mornings where you get the chance to watch and be part of some amazing learning and some really big steps for some of the children. … Continue reading
Using tools is fun, it can also be dangerous if we use them incorrectly. At forest school we do lots of things that could be risky but we think about the safest way we can do things and how we can minimise accidents happening. There are lots of things to think about when using tools … Continue reading
This morning we really stretched our imagination muscles when we climbed the Magic Faraway Tree. We found ourselves in Monster Land today, we were so excited to find the enchanted photo tree there. This time we wished really hard to make the magic work on the photos. Take a look and see how scary it … Continue reading
