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.
We found lots of puddles on the way to Forest School and had great fun splashing in them!
We practiced balancing and of course investigating the mud.
Today the children were so busy and engaged in lots of forest experiences including, swinging, climbing, building and teamwork.
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.
MUD DAY !!!!!!!
Today we had a vision and it came to life. Our children explored their senses through jelly, mud, water, bubbles, gloop, flour and grass. The children were allowed to get as muddy as possible and to share this experience with the full Cart Mill family.
Children within this developmental stage it is crucial to engage in outdoor experience, thus experience allowed children to explore the world around them in a fun and unfamiliar way. The children also develop their social skills, risk taking, gross motor skill and physical ability through this experience. This is an great example of “learning through play “.
This was not only for the children but also for the staff. This type of experience is known to provide joy and happiness if we let it and today at Cart Mill we did just that. Laughter filled the air and fun was had by all.
Please keep an an eye on the board in the hall way for more mud day pictures. Thank you to everybody who helped to make this work, especially you the parents, this was a huge success.
