Forest School launch with Cedar Class
This morning, Cedar Class launched our Forest School here in the Daniel Beamish Forest Garden at Lydiate Primary, led by Molly Toal, the Forest School Project Officer for the Lancashire Wildlife Trust. The children had a fantastic couple of hours. After an initial safety talk at the site of the fire pit, the children went on to enjoy a wealth of outdoor activities, which will be built upon over consecutive weeks. We moved like insects, played hide and seek, participated in a treasure hunt, used trowels to dig in the mud, created a worm circus using sticks, dressed up and used magnifiers for closer observations. Such a buzz of excitement from the children as they created, initiated, shared, investigated, explored and cooperated. We are loving our learning in the Outdoors and can't wait for next Thursday when we do it all again! We'll keep you posted.
