What a wet morning! There were no organised activities on offer in the woods today as everything was very wet!
However, as you will see from the photos and video below, most children entered into the spirit of things - even if they just enjoyed the spectacle of some very muddy friends!
They learned about wearing the correct clothing for the weather, some learned how it feels to wear the wrong clothing. They also learned that it is OK to have fun, and get messy without adults becoming upset. They learned how to manage themselves in getting out of wet and muddy clothing. Independence is key in Forest School and as an important skill in growing up.
Another advantage today was that children learned how to manage their feelings when they were really uncomfortable; nobody forced them to get onto the mudslide!
Alder Group were more fortunate with the weather - they enjoyed making swings, running around and sitting chatting with friends.
