Each Forest School session is planned for but these plans are very loose and sometimes changed spur of the moment. The Forest School Approach is very much based on the child and what they would like to do, so if a child finds an interest we go with it to extend their learning. Below are this half term's plans to share with you; Week 1 EXPLORE - Make a base camp, 'Poo Detectives, Child led activities. Week 2 TEXTURES - Meet a tree, make rope mobiles, child led activities.

This week we carried out our two Forest school sessions and what a difference the weather has made! We created a 'Base Camp' and gathered the children here at the beginning and end of the session to discuss what we would be doing and what we had learnt. This week the children were 'Poo Detectives' searching for different types of poo and finding out what animal they belonged to!
