Forest School Week 9

It’s hard to believe that we’ve reached week 9 of Forest School. We’ve been so privileged to watch summer slip in to autumn and this morning we had our first taste of winter with frosty patterns to look at and crisp, crunchy sounds underfoot. Seeing the changing seasons in the forest is a wonderful way for children to appreciate the wonders of nature. As forest school practitioners, the changing seasons gives us the opportunity to discuss why these must happen but, the best part for all of us is the visual impact that seasons make in the forest throughout the year. Discussion with your children is endless; colours, changes, temperature, sounds, smells and who wants a hot chocolate! So, we hope that when this block ends after next week’s cook-out we have shared our passion with our budding foresteers and that they will join us for our Big Fit Walk on Saturday 9th November to share their new found appreciation of our beautiful outdoors with you!
