Last day at Forest School for Matilda Class

Today was the last Forest School session for Matilda Class. To celebrate this we went on one final trip to Hunsbury Hill Country Park on the minibus. When we arrived we had a short time to play in the park before it started to rain and we had to take shelter in the trees. Whilst taking shelter we had a special snack ice cream treat and talked about our favourite times at Forest School.

When the rain had stopped we went on an adventure through the woods, along narrow high paths, down steep slopes and through valleys of roots and trees. When we came to a clearing in the woods we found a place to sit and Mrs Read presented us with our name cookies to keep as a souvenir from Forest School.

I hope you have had an enjoyable time at Forest School Matilda class, and that your adventures in the woods continue!

Sunny day treat for Paddington class

It has been a very hot and sunny afternoon today so we all enjoyed the welcome shade of the trees in the woods. As a special treat, because it is one of our last forest school sessions, when we first arrived at the park we all enjoyed an ice cream to help us cool down. Then we had a short time to play on the equipment before we got too hot. We found a shaded tree tunnel walk down into the woods, but it was a trick, and some of the adults were waiting with water pistols! It was fun getting wet, and luckily the water ran out quickly!

The children enjoyed exploring the woods and all chose to do their favourite thing. Some built dens and climbed trees, others searched for insects, and a few decided to do bark rubbing pictures.

Simba Class Minibus Adventure

It has been a very hot and sunny day today and we had an exciting morning, as it was our first time on the school minibus. All of the children were so excited to be travelling on the minibus for the first time.
We went to explore Hunsbury Hill Country Park. The children enjoyed waiting for the second group to arrive on the bus with a play in the park. It was fun exploring the play equipment with our friends.
To find our new Forest School area we had to go on a long journey through the woods. It involved balancing along high narrow paths, stepping carefully down steep slopes and navigating safely through a jungle of nettles…..it was such a long way we had to stop off at a fallen down tree for a drink and a snack!
When we arrived we enjoyed exploring the woods. There were lots of big branches and fallen logs, perfect for making dens. Some of the children also enjoyed collecting the wood to make a pretend fire which they then sat around roasting their marshmallows on sticks….yummy!
All of the children behaved very well and had a fantastic time. Well done Simba class! 🙂
