Here is the latest Kymbrook Forest School news
Well, we have been back to forest school for the last two weeks braving the colder weather! It's been so much fun! I have loved seeing them again and hearing about what they have got up to over the Christmas break! The children have been busy using tools where they can with Monkey class starting to use potato peelers to whittle sticks. Also, children have been mapping the field, making use of the new tarp, dancing in the snow as it fell, making their own hammocks, parachuting (with the tarp) and using the ice found in the field to make art! One girl spent the whole session making a spider's web out of rope on our freestanding poles all by herself! Absolutely amazing to witness as it involved a lot of thinking, physical strength and problem solving on her part.
The next couple of weeks will be National story telling week and then Mental Health week where I have planned some activities for them to do related to this ending with' a rolling fire' the last week where the children will come out in small groups to toast a marshmallow and enjoy the warmth. So lots to look forward to for us.
