Fun was had by all on our latest visit to Kiveton Park Woodland today! 

As a school we now engage in regular Forest Learning led by our new Forest School, in training, practitioner Ms Lumb. Forest Learning embraces the principles of Forest School as a child led approach but is facilitated by adults. Learning with nature is this style aids problem solving, resilience, team work, communication, and language in addition to curricular links such as maths, geography, science, PSHE and of course a respect for nature.

During today’s visit the children from Miss Chambers’ class made Tree Boggarts with clay and natural resources we found. They also had a scavenger hunt to find natural treasures with differing textures which we then created collages with. The last challenge was to find and identify tree leaves and make leaf rubbings with them.
