Learning through Forest School
Do you know the story of Percy and the Park Keeper 'After the Storm'? Well, a terrible storm blows down all of the animals houses and they have nowhere to live! We decided to help the animals by building them new houses. We then labelled them to make sure the animals knew where to go.
As you can see from the photos, the children showed high levels of engagement and well-being, loving being out in the woods, working together to solve problems whilst developing their physical skills and their literacy skills. This is a perfect example of how Forest School can help develop the holistic child, which is crucial for our children to become happy children and then successful adults. And its great fun!
Well, what a fantastic start to school we have had! The children have settled in at record speed, we are really impressed! This year is going to be amazing. We will keep this blog updated every couple of weeks so please keep checking back.
