Forest School Visit – May 2016

One very windy and cold Wednesday we went to Forest School. It had rained so much the night before that the paths had turned into streams and massive puddles had formed making large areas of Forest School under water! The children enjoyed climbing right to the top of the hill and leaning into the wind, feeling it push back against their bodies. We slipped and slid down the other side where they were fascinated by the muddy puddles some of which were different colours, they laughed and splashed and waded across seeing if they were too deep for their boots. As it was so cold we decided to keep on moving to stay warm so we didn’t stop at base camp but went right on through it and down out of the wind to the city farm café where we had our snack. We then looked around the farm at all the animals, even getting a glimpse of the baby piglets feeding from their mum in the sty. Particularly popular, were the goats as they let us stroke them. We then washed our hands and marched on back to Blue Room singing songs to keep our spirits high. It was a wild Forest School session and we walked a long way but all the children managed really well and remained enthusiastic throughout. When we finally made it back we peeled off the wet layers and relaxed; rosy-cheeked and gently steaming.
