Forest School


On a Wednesday and Friday we have a 2 hr session from 9.15-11.15 of Outdoor Learning over in the primary school grounds, which is next door. We explore all things forest school in rain or shine, we especially love the mud kitchens and cooking around the fire. We talk every session about the rules of being in the Outdoor Learning space and how we keep ourselves safe from things like stinging nettles and red ants that are forever present. We at Community Kids feel that outdoor learning gives the children freedom to explore and develop independence in the outdoor environment, refine fine and gross motor skills using the mud kitchen, digging, planting, whisking, pouring and getting muddy! The children love to play hide and seek with lots of great hiding places and always enjoy a snack from biscuits to marshmallows cooked over the fire.
