It might have been a little bit wet, it might have been a little bit windy, it might have deterred some people from visiting the forest but not Cart Mill children, they couldn’t wait to get back out to our muddy, mucky forest. The first thing we had to do was assess any risks. The children looked up to check for loose branches that could have been dislodged by the wind, they looked down to check for branches they could trip over and also for any rubbish that could hurt them. Finally, they looked out to see if there were any jaggy bushes that could scratch their faces. Once we had decided it was safe we played, we climbed, we splashed, we explored and we had FUN!
