Every week since JR started nursery at his current school he has attended a session in their on site forest school. However from year 1 until year 6 they only get 1 term of sessions, and last week was his last session of year 1. It was however a very special session because parents were invited along to take part. So I donned my wellies, hat scarf and gloves and headed off to meet a very excited Jr at his school.
When I arrived at forest school JR and his friends were sat around the fire circle waiting for their parents to arrive. The teacher then told them to take their mommies to play. First of all JR took me to dig for buried treasure in the dirt pit. I found 6 gold coins much to JR’s excitement. We then made glittery pine cone tree decorations before heading into the mud kitchen where JR made me a lovely mud pie.
JR then wanted to show me that the stickman and gruffalo’s friend Owl really live at forest school!
We all had such an amazing afternoon at forest school, its just a pity he has no further sessions until the final term of year 2.
