Reception’s Forest School adventures

Elmhurst School for Boys

30th April 2014

Reception have recently enjoyed the first of their Forest School sessions, this half term.

The boys visited Littleheath Woods for a fun afternoon of outdoor exploration and games. They also started to build their own shelters using natural materials.

Forest School sessions aim to develop each boy’s appreciation and respect for nature, but also provide invaluable opportunities for developing problem solving skills, initiative, co-operation and physical development.

Read some comments from Reception about Forest School:

"We walked in the mud, then we walked through the lovely bluebells" Nathan

"I liked it when we ran up and down the hill" Alan

"I liked making the trap for a dragon" Ishaan

"When I went to the beech tree, they looked really tall and lovely" Joel

"I liked when I played around beech trees and the blindfold game" Christian

"I liked seeing the choo- choo fairies" Jack

"My favourite part is making fire for the dragon and it made every one warm in the forest school" Maadhesh

"I liked it when we played the forest school game (hide and seek)"  Joshua
