Our final day in the forest today and the sun shone for us. After a frosty start it turned into the perfect autumnal day, we saw brambles, rose hips and lots of leaves that were starting to get their brown autumn coats. To warm ourselves up we thought hot chocolate and marshmallows would be the order of the day to finish off our Forest adventure. I don’t think we were the only visitors to the forest who wanted some yummy hot chocolate!
From today we will be sharing the learning and play that is happening in our playrooms and in the outdoors. It is unfortunate that our parents and carers are not able to come inside and see what their child is learning but we hope to share some of that with you on our blog.
On Friday, we had our first Forest School session and it was muddy fun for all as you can see in these photos.
We are delighted that our well established Forest School Programme will begin this Friday with our first group of children whose parents have been notified. The aim is for all of our pre-school children to take part and if we can we will also include our 3 year old children.
At Cart Mill we are passionate about the outdoors and want all of our children to experience learning in a natural environment which is the benefit of Forest School. Children will develop their curiosity for the living world and their confidence will increase as they explore a new setting.

The Friday forest school group had asked to make soup so Stephanie thought let’s make it on the fire pit. The children helped to prepare the vegetables and then helped to cook the soup on the smoky fire.
