Forest School 31.01.2020
This afternoon we have been very lucky to be out at Forest School. The children started by doing a scavenger hunt. Children selected pictures out of Miss Abbott's special bag and then they had to go and find them around the field. We looked for daisies, spiderwebs and worms to name but a few. At the end of the session, the children went into the chicken pen and had a look at the chickens. They were even able to stroke one. They were very excited by this.
