Early Years learn from Mother Nature

Early Years felt a strong connection with nature when they took learning outdoors on Monday morning for Forest School. They commented on the changes they could see since their last visit during the midwinter. Within this safe environment, the children take personal responsibility by choosing what they want to do, helping to build their self-esteem. They all demonstrated excellent teamwork on this trip, working together to achieve various goals.

Children measured the circumference of trees, made dens, discovered different types of insects, drew their surroundings, made pretend beds and fires out of sticks, watched for birds, sang songs, made potions, coloured trees and more! They were thrilled to be learning outside.
