Group 4 have been spending some time in the woods on our nurture nature sessions. The children get themselves ready, independently putting on their own waterproof suits and wellies and then help carry the rucksacks.
They have been observing the changes in the season as we walk to the woods, watching for the squirrels and have been collecting items in wonder bags to share at our special gather time under the trees, they share what they found and have snack together before exploring the environment.
The children have been risk assessing the area and ensuring their own safety as they jump from the mud hill, get in and out of the hammock, climb the trees and throw stones and sticks into the water. They created safety rules and have been working hard on making sure everyone carries out these important rules such as staying inside the roped area and not crossing the bridge until the gate is in the correct place.
They have also been learning about the importance of taking care of the environment – we are careful and gentle with any insects we find, we have made sure we don’t leave any milk cartons behind or any rubbish. We take it away with us and put it in the bin – they only thing we leave behind is our footprints.
