Forest School in Reception

Forest School in Reception

We love Forest School in Reception.

It is a great opportunity for the children to develop their personal, social and emotional skills. They enjoy working together and exploring the outside area.

This term we are so are so lucky to have with Miss O’Connor leading our Forest School sessions.

There is always great excitement when we find fairies hiding in the forest. The children enjoyed working together and making a special potion for the fairies.

The children also enjoy playing and getting nice and mucky in our mud kitchen.

Some of the children drew some beautiful pictures of the wild flowers growing in our garden area.

We look forward to many more Forest School sessions through the year!
