Today has been National Forest School Day!!🌳
This week we have marked National Forest School Day, which was on Friday 14th October by having our usual fun in our woods! This week we introduced Oaks to the slackline and they had the chance to make a nature bracelet. We also found a caterpillar which the children all decided to name Hugo! Willows, Chestnuts and Ash all were busy with the slackline, den building (with sticks and tarp), mud painting or art with natural resources, tool work and then they had the chance to practise their fire starting skills. All children were fully engaged and as always blew my mind with ideas they came up with! There was Autumn stick fairies whittled, mud animals made, a ladder which had been made last week was given a different location and the shared with the other children. I love their creativity and use of our beautiful woodland outside space.
Just a little reminder that weather is really starting to turn now with autumn with fully set in so wellies and waterproofs are an absolute must so the children can really get involved without messing up their uniform.
