We have been putting our new shelter to good use over recent weeks during Forest School sessions. It has provided us with a base to introduce sessions, store equipment and to enjoy social experiences together, to name but a few.
Our ‘Mums, Lads and lasses’ event was a great success, well attended and the engagement by all taking part was a pleasure to see. Working in small groups children and adults worked together to create solutions to overcome a range of challenges in order to avoid getting wet! This was done in a variety of ways that displayed different approaches to the same problem and when reflecting we were able to recognise ways of improving/adapting our shelters. During all the hard work<and fun> families were able to enjoy a hot chocolate and biscuits around our new ‘Fire Circle’ located at the heart of our new shelter.
A big thank you to all who attended and making it a success, I look forward to seeing you at our next event, remember your wellies!
