Matilda class had a great time at forest school on Friday. As it is national tree week, we spent the session talking all about the importance of trees. Trees are a very important part of our ecosystem. They take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and put out oxygen. They help keep our air clean, help other plants grow, provide homes for wildlife and help protect us from extreme weather. Oh, and we mustn’t forget- they are beautiful!
The children were tasked with the following activities: find your favourite tree in the forest, hug a tree, tree bark rubbings, count how many trees in the forest and of course tree climbing!
It was a wonderful afternoon in the great outdoors admiring our beautiful forest school trees. Some children even took time to sit down on the forest floor and take in all of the beauty around them.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
