Today, Reception children enjoyed their first forest school session with Wild Brambles.

Their topic this half term is traditional tales. The children enjoyed singing songs, discussing health and safety rules, using sign language, playing games e.g. ‘what’s the time Mr Fox?’, acting out characters from the story ‘The Gingerbread Man’, going on a gingerbread man hunt, finding footprints of a fox, making a gingerbread man out of mud and natural resources (seeds, shells, stones, leaves, sticks ), crossing a bridge, making a bridge for the gingerbread man and making pretend fire.

They had an amazing time and can’t wait for next week!
