This week Nursery enjoyed a wonderful shared experience at Forest School.
We gathered at ‘Base Camp’ in the new Forest School area. The children were taught how to move safely to and from the fire area and they understood there was to be strictly no moving within the fire circle. This was practised before Laura, our Forest School Leader introduced the Kelly Kettle. She encouraged the children to consider what was necessary to create a fire and then, using a small spark, we all watched in great anticipation as the twigs caught alight. As the smoke curled its way into the frosty air, we chatted together while we waited for the Kelly Kettle to boil. Soon we were all sipping delicious warm hot chocolate. What a heart warming start to the day.
