Nursery's words Autumn week 5
We had our first week of Forest School up at the Junior Boys’ site where everyone arrived bright eyed and bushy tailed first thing this morning. Parents had commented on sleepless nights and early mornings with the children being very excited to be going.
Mr P, our Forest School specialist, led the expedition into The Thicket where they explored, questioned, chatted and just enjoyed being in an amazing natural environment.
Resilient • Creative • Collaborative
It is important to remember when doing Forest School, that the child must initiate their learning and that as adults we don’t restrict their thoughts and actions. Safety is of course paramount but this ethos does give the children the chance to have fun but have challenging opportunities. From that springboard we can then focus on developing a variety of skills and behaviours that young people need to be successful learners and individuals in this fast paced world. As these little ones mature, they will learn to stretch themselves and push their own boundaries and limitations; we believe it is good to be wrong as long as we learn from that experience and bounce back. Forest School allows this in abundance.
I am sure your children will tell you lots about their morning but here are a few pictures too.
Critical Thinkers • Communicators • Knowledgeable
