Forest School!

Today was our final week at Forest School so we had some special treats.. Pieces and Sausage, Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows!!

The children have enjoyed visiting the forest over the last 4 weeks and have always been greeted by some friendly visitors..

The children have said that their favourite part of going to the forest has been creating mud monsters.. look at these scary faces!

E, R and S even found some sticks on the ground that they could recognise as letters and numbers.

S – ”Look! it’s like a number 4”

E – ”I have this letter in my name, its a letter Y”

R – ”R is in my name, it’s at the start of it, I can write it too”

 

Forest Fun

Today was the Tuesday Forest School Group’s first day and what fun they had.

Mud was the order of the day and the muddier the better!


Rolling down the hill – dizzy fun!

It is so lovely when the horses hear the children’s voices they come rushing over to see them.

This video captures the excitement and joy of running through the mud.

 

Bye bye Forest!

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!

 

Sharing Our Learning

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.

 

Forest School is Starting Soon

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.
