Today has been a very exciting day!
We had a visit from a Hedgehog called Rosie and 2 Rabbits; Buttercup and Tulip. Some of us were really brave and stroked the Hedgehog, he was very prickly! Lots of us held the rabbits, they were really fluffy!
Please see the pictures below.

We also received a letter from Harold the Hedgehog who lives in our playground. He asked if we could build him a house to live in over the winter using the leaves and twigs that are in our playground. He has been eating lots of worms and is starting to get very sleepy.
We made some fabulous houses!!

We are very lucky at Larklands Nursery to have a Level 3 qualified Forest School leader, Miss Banks. Miss Banks run's a program with a small group of children in the 'forest' at the rear of the school, alongside Mrs Hemsley.
At Larklands Nursery we understand the importance of outdoor learning in the lives of young children and ensure that every effort is made to use our grounds and resources to their full potential. We have seen first hand the impact the sessions have on the children in terms of self-confidence and self-awareness, understanding the world and increased progress with communication and language skills.

Scroll down to find out more about what the Nursery children have been doing during their time in Forest Schools.  
 
Here are some pictures of activities that we take part in during Forest School:

 

 

We pass around our 'Talking Stick' to introduce ourselves and share our favourite parts of the Forest School session!
 

 

We build shelters together when the weather is wet to help us to keep dry!

 

 

 

We enjoy a snack time together in the log circle, Hot chocolate is our favourite!
