Woodland adventures for all

We are lucky enough to have our own woodland classroom a short walk from school. All year groups have benefitted this half term with visits to explore, have fun and learn outdoors. Our youngest pupils in Owls continue to make regular 'Forest Friday' trips. This is an account of their first visit: 

Although wet, we walked to the woods behind the church safely. The children all had a sense of road safety and could talk about why we had our high vis jackets on so vehicles could see use all easily. When we arrived we sung our Forest Friday song and the children began to join in with some of the words.

There were then a range of challenges to enable the children to explore the environment - all were able to stick the the given boundaries and safety instructions.

The children had to collect a variety of things from the woodland floor - leaves that they described and said why they had picked their leaf. Thin/short sticks which we compared and discussed.

They then had the freedom to explore for themselves - many explored the established den areas, some lifted the tree stumps to look for mini beasts and others continued collecting things of interest.

At the end of the session, we enjoyed a drink and a snack and talked about our first trip to the woods.
