Notre Dames Forest School

Since introducing the children in BlueBelles Nursery to the Forest School experience in September they have enjoyed various outdoor learning experiences in our beautiful grounds. They have made kites, identified a variety of mini beasts, learnt to recognise and name various trees, built shelters, learnt about hibernation and enjoyed getting muddy whilst making mud hedgehogs! Snack is enjoyed altogether and usually includes hot chocolate. All of the children benefit from Forest School and they all look forward to our weekly sessions. Once the waterproof clothing is put on there is no stopping them. Muddy puddles are jumped in, sticks are used to write in the mud and tree trunks are used for climbing. At the end of a Forest school session, the children return back to the classroom with big smiles, rosy cheeks and their hands and pockets full of the treasures they have found. They are already looking forward to their next adventure in the forest!
