Welcome Back!

A big welcome back to all of our children and families some of whom were back today with the remainder back during this week.  The children missed their friends and were busy catching up on missed play times.  We have lots of exciting things happening this term which we look forward to sharing with you and your children.

One of these exciting experiences is Forest School.  We have a record 32 children accessing Forest School this term.   There is an information session for the parents/carers of this group of children this Thursday at 5pm so please look out for the e-mail invite which was sent today.

Happy New Year!

Forest Schools Best Bits

We are now at the end of our Forest school block one, what a journey it has been. Stephanie, Sharon, Val and Gemma have had the pleasure of seeing your children grow through the last ten weeks. We have observed children grow in confidence, taking on new challenges and building new friendships.

Here are some of our favourite memories.

Mud Make up became a tradition.

Our children challenged their gross motor development and reached new goals every week.

We learned new skills with tools. We assessed the risk and made decisions based on our own and others safety.

We watched as children developed new friendships and worked with each other as a team.

Our most favourite and memorable day was in week 6 – the mudiest week of all! We made a mud slide. There was laughter from all, children and staff and it will be a memory we treasure forever. For us staff, we appreciated how lucky we are to have a job that fills us with so much fun, joy and laughter.

We finished our journey off with a cook out which went down a treat.

We have had a great 10 weeks and we hope to hear how your child’s experience has been through our evaluation sheets. If you did not receive one please let Stephanie, Sharon, Val or Gemma know and we can get one to you.
