Gwennol continue to enjoy, explore and discover in our Forest School. We played games and the children were invited to develop their knot tying skills by making a photo frame.
Exploring and building shelters for some other animals!
All children in Dosbarth Gwennol had a fantastic first forest schools session today with Mrs Fielding and Miss Darling aka Butterfly Treeo and Wolf Birdie! The class was split into two groups ‘The Nature Friends’ and the ‘Howlers’ (yes the children came up with these names) and we enjoyed spending some time embedding our rules and routines and beginning our forest school experience. We talked about staying safe in the forest and we spent time exploring the woods.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Oaker Wood! As you can see! More photos to follow!
We welcomed Impelo dance group in to school today. We watched a dance about cells in our body and then took part in a dance workshop that helped us understand more about how the different cells in the body work!
Mrs Fielding and Miss Jones are currently studying to become Level 3 Forest Schools Practitioners with the aim of establishing our very own forest school community in our school grounds. The forest school will be located on the school field under the canopy of the beautiful oak, hazel and ash trees. The ethos of the forest schools experience is to give learners the opportunity to develop self esteem, build confidence, resilience and take risks in a practical, physical and natural outdoor environment.
If you have any experience, advice or resources that would assist in the development of our forest schools community, we would love to hear from you.
