What will my child be learning this term?
Forest Schools September and October 2019.
This half term at forest schools the children have been enjoying their sessions.
They have been learning our 3 R's, which are respect, reliable and responsible where the children learn to use the 3 R's throughout their lives, towards themselves, others and nature.
This half term the children have had various sessions, these consist of the children splitting into 3 groups, each with a Forest School Leader, taking part in different activities, the groups include:
- Fire making, where the children have been attempting to make sparks using a flint and steel,
- Parkour, where, the children have been constructing their own assault courses and completing them
- Games/gardening where, the children have been playing various team games, sorting pebbles and digging for worms.
The sessions are all structured, full of various activities and all start with free-play. This is vital for outdoor learning, this part includes the children, as a whole class, having the exciting opportunity to explore our outdoor forest school area. They do this while using their imagination and creativity, doing lots of fun things such as: playing in the mud, creating homes for small animals, making dens, climbing trees and playing games, this is all done while experiencing the great outdoors, learning and practising the 3 R's.
