UK class visits Ingfield Manor

7th March 2018
On Wednesday U.K. class once again shared a Forest School session with children from Ingfield Manor School. David Spreadbury-Troy has worked in the wood around Ingfield Manor School to create an interactive outside learning environment for the children and we feel privileged to visit the woodland twice a term. U.K. were encouraged to make use of natural found materials to make dens and creations in the wood. Planned activities concentrated on specific tasks such as toasting marshmallows over the fire and making fir cone owls. In addition the children climb designated climbing trees, spot birds, look for insects, dig in the ground and balance on logs.
 
In every outdoor session children increase their awareness of the open space around them, they are learning to run and walk over the uneven terrain of the woodland floor. I would like to thank David for spending time with us and also our parents who were amazing on Wednesday and made a real effort to interact with all children. We could not have these Forest School sessions without our volunteers.
