Forest School in Reception

Classes CH and KM have been introduced to the Forest School approach to learning at our newly developed Robin Wood up at the field. We have learnt the rules and have enjoyed investigating the new area through games and exploration. Over the past four weeks we have developed our learning and skills through a range of activities including:

  • Scavenger hunts
  • Building small and large dens.
  • Learning call back.
  • Making bird feeders.
  • Whittling.
  • Making log dogs.
  • Working as a team to build a giant bird nest.
  • Digging for worms.
  • Making elves
  • Imaginative play
  • Mud kitchen role play
  • Listened to stories.
  • Learning about nature.
We have braved all weathers such as snow, rain and sun. At the end of the session we join together to enjoy our snacks and a lovely warming hot chocolate. We have enjoyed getting muddy and have learnt lots of interesting things and being together in a new and exciting environment.
