Here is the latest Thurleigh Forest School news
Well, we have been back to forest school for the last two weeks braving the colder weather out in our beautiful woods! It's been so much fun! I have loved seeing them again and hearing about what they have got up to over the Christmas break! The wind was very strong on our first week which made us have a re think and play games. The children have the rest of the time been busy using tools where they can with Oak class starting to use potato peelers to whittle sticks. Also children have been mapping the field, building spooky houses out sticks, building swings to perfection, practising their jumping skills over moving a moving stick and using the ice found in the field to make art!
The next couple of weeks will be National story telling week and then Mental Health week where I have planned some activities for them to do related to this ending with' a rolling fire' the last week where the children will come out in small groups to toast a marshmallow and enjoy the warmth. So lots to look forward to for us.
