Everyone is valued and learning is fun

Forest School

9th February 2024

This week marks the end of forest school for our Conker Crew and Adventurous Acorns groups.  They have been working with Mrs Delahay and Mrs Wiggins every week since September working on their social skills, confidence and self esteem through exploration, play, den building, using tools, crafting and lighting campfires. We have really enjoyed working with the children, seeing them grow and develop new skills and confidence which they can take with them through life.

This week saw the start of our forest school groups, both groups took part in playing games, den building, bug hunting and making tree faces using clay and other natural objects. Of course there was also the mandatory pause for reflection, hot chocolate and biscuits in the beautiful autumn sunshine. Well done to the Conker Crew and the Adventurous Acorns, Mrs Delahay and Mrs Wiggins are looking forward to next week already. - W/C 2nd October 2023
