A Bonfire of Leaves

Our Nursery children had fun in the Autumn sun during their Forest School session. Their first challenge was to collect yellow leaves, they found some really brightly coloured ones. Then they moved onto red and finally orange. Once they’d filled their bags they gathered armfuls of sticks and we headed to the Forest School Art Gallery where we created a bonfire picture together.

Through our Forest School sessions we enable our children to develop their personal, social, emotional and physical skills by encouraging and inspiring them through positive experiences. Participation in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks in our outdoor environment, allowing them freedom to explore and create, to plan and initiate gives them a sense of value and resilience that they can take with them in all aspects of their lives. This is just the start of their Forest School journey, so much more to see and do over their years at Harlow Green.

Principle 1: Forest School is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions in a woodland or natural environment, rather than a one-off visit. Planning, adaptation, observations and reviewing are integral elements of Forest School.

Article 28 – We all have the right to a good quality education.
