Forest School

Welcome to the gallery! Please enjoy browsing the children’s work.

Reception visit Forest School once a week come rain or shine.

We put on our waterproofs and our wellies ready to explore and investigate on our Forest School adventures.

Monet class visited Forest School for the first time today.

Buttons and Fudge came to Forest School! We think they enjoyed eating the grass and laying in the sunshine.

We have been looking for minibeasts, making music, investigating the chutes and ramps and mixing up delicious delights in our mud kitchen!

Forest School Development Day...A huge thank you to everyone who donated tools and plants or who helped out on the day. It was amazing to see such a transformation in a short space of time and I am hugely grateful to everybody who gave up their Saturday to make our Forest School a more interesting and educational space for the children of Longlands.

Planting Rowan, Cherry and Silver Birch trees!

We had a wonderful afternoon making dens! The children worked really well together, listened to each other's ideas and showed amazing team work!

Reception made bird feeders and hung them up in our outside area. You could make some at home for your garden or to hang up in a park. Just roll a cardboard tube in jam or honey and then roll it in bird seed!

This week we made Autumn bookmarks, we searched the forest school area carefully to find interesting things to stick on.

We worked very hard to ensure we found any potential 'hazards' and then investigated the area. We found lots of broken dog toys which we collected and put in the bin! We don't know how all the dog toys got there as the gate to the field is always locked...perhaps foxes brought the dog toys for their cubs to play with?!
