Little Elms - Parent and Son Forest School Day

Elmhurst School for Boys

24th March 2017 | Little Elms Blog

Thank you to all the Little Elms parents who braved the rain, cold and even hail to attend our Parent and Son Forest School day. I think you will all agree the boys had a wonderful time going on their ‘Wild Thing’ adventure and making Wild Thing Mud Monsters. I was so pleased to see so many parents getting their hands dirty and creating some very imaginative Monsters.

Forest School is such a special place for the boys and they throw themselves into each session with such enthusiasm that it is hard not to get caught up in their joy. Forest school is also wonderful for building up resilience to obstacles. Grit and determination are words we use often in Little Elms and throughout Elmhurst School. Forest school is all about grit. Can I get up that hill? Can I build my own shelter? Today I am going to build my own magic stick, without teacher help! Or,today I am going to stick my hands in the mud for the first time. Resilience can be a tough skill to teach in the classroom. When a boys says ‘I can't do it.’ We get them to say, ‘I can’t do it, yet.’ Next term we are introducing a Grit jar to celebrate those Little Elms that show Grit and determination in and out of the classroom. Enjoy the Easter holidays!
