It was a VERY cold and wet afternoon 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 and count how many trees in the forest.
It was a wonderful afternoon in the great outdoors admiring our beautiful forest school trees.
Please can I just remind you to please send children in suitable clothing for forest school. Now that it is getting colder, children need several warm layers, hat, gloves etc to keep them nice and warm.
Thank you 🙂
