The sun shone as we set off with nursery and After School club yesterday to enjoy exploring the site by the stream.
Cooperation and collaboration, communication and understanding, consideration of others, risk taking and challenge were all very much in evidence.
The nursery children explored and found an empty egg shell and tried to make a nest for the egg. The girls found a hole and dug for worms.
The After school club has a challenge to undertake when they spotted a brick in the stream that they wanted to retrieve. the problem was they were not to get their feet wet! how far can i stretch?, Will this branch be long enough?. Can we find a longer stick? I need some help to drag this long piece of twisted wood please. i am delighted to report that the brick was retrieved and much merriment ensued!”
The value of forest School is immense.
