We will keep you updated!
Yesterday was sadly our last day of Forest Schools, the children enjoyed decorating the woodland, having hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.
Our Forest School sessions are run by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. For more information: www.wildforestschool.org.uk
We had a very special day yesterday at Forest School, as parents joined us. The children were very busy showing them skills they have learnt over the past 5 weeks. A photographer came and enjoyed our wet, but fun afternoon, taking pictures of families which we hope will feature in the Leicester Mercury.
Children created shelters, sculptures and made clay animals.
We had an amazing day at Forest Schools, the children under supervision lit fires. We enjoyed a game of hide and seek, but really enjoyed the hot chocolate and biscuits the most!
Yesterday we had a great time building shelters and making jewellery.
Forest School is a unique outdoor educational programme, giving children the chance to explore, learn and discover at their own pace, developing their confidence and self - esteem in a safe supported space.
The project is generously funded by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
We at Belgrave have selected 12 pupils to engage in this programme for 10 weeks to use our new woodland and surrounding areas whatever the weather, using the natural resources to stimulate imagination, create and investigate through activities such as: woodworking using tools, making musical instruments, jewellery, shelter building, bug hunts and fire lighting. This is all supervised by a trained Forest school leader Kate Easton.
All activities are thoroughly risk assessed before the start of each session and continue to monitor during the session.
It's great FUN!
