Reception Forest School Parent and Son Day

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th November 2016 | Forest School

It was so wonderful to see so many parents at our Reception Forest School Parent Day! What a memorable day we had sharing, learning, playing games, creating, laughing, reflecting and having fun! There was a letter this week in the fairy tree telling us about Autumn so we joined our parents collecting Autumn treasure which we later used to make some magic autumn sticks. We had a picnic lunch together and then practiced our Elmhurst Explorers Code of Trust, Respect and Teamwork and took are parents on a blindfold obstacle course. Did you trust your partner at the end? We had some time to initiate and create our own ideas centred around our challenge boards: rope bridges, shelters, fire,the mud kitchen and using our imagination! We made mud sculptures and I have to give a special mention to the amazing array of creations which included dinosaurs and spider's webs (well done Arnav and his Mum!). We then had a well-earned relaxation and meditation time gazing up at the beech trees, reflecting on what we had done that day. Lastly, we made some magic forest school wishes for the future.

Thank you everyone for such a lovely day! Forest School is such an important part of your son's Elmhurst education. Extending learning beyond the classroom, developing personal, social and emotional skills and creating memories that will last forever.
