Forest School Blog for week ending 7th July 2017
10 July 2017

Over the summer term our forest school groups have become increasingly interested in improving the jungle space, working with natural materials and creating their own activities, using the new skills they are developing. On Saturday a group of these children, together with parents, grandparents, siblings and volunteer builders and gardeners, came together in the jungle to give the area a well-deserved tidy up, make improvements and clear new ground. With more and more families arriving over the morning the to-do list was soon completed. The work carried out included re-roofing and felting the wooden play house, painting the blackboard, clearing the rubbish and weeds out of the ‘Kid’s Kingdom’, planting trees, tidying up some brush fencing, building two new wood stores, weeding the veg planting area and tidying up the top of the willow arch. The barbecue was then lit and there was the opportunity to share a communal meal and chat in a nice shady spot. Many thanks to everyone who took part, young and old, these improvements would not be possible without your collective generosity and enthusiasm. It was a great day and we all made some new friends.

There will be another family day in the autumn term. If you missed the fun this time, please do come and join us next time.
