It is very hard to believe it, that is the end of the school year. All of the children from Nursery, Reception and Year 1 had tremendous opportunities during terms 1, 2, 3 to enjoy nature and had a lot of pleasure from the activities we shared in Dubravka forest. Let me briefly mention the activities which we have delivered during 7 sessions:
• Timber hitch knot on the fishing stick.
• Wild in the Woods.
• Can you find a treasure box from Robin Hood?
• Wonderful winter hunt
• Super spring scavenger hunt.
• Go on the bug hunt.
• Be a summer sleuth!
During these activities I could see in the children lots of confidence and independence in the woodlands, they also developed self-confidence, social skills and language as well as a better understanding of nature and the environment. These are just some of the benefits but the most important was that the children had a chance to be children and had a lot of fun!
I wish you all, but especially my dear colleagues without whom the Forest School was not a Forest School, an unforgettable summer holiday!
