Wonderful Feedback!

Wonderful Feedback!

Posted on April 13th 2020

We have sent the most incredible number of our FREE home learning packs out to the public! The response has been wonderful and it's humbling to know that we've been able to help families in self isolation during these times. Covid-19 has affected our business and we are really missing being able to work with our schools. However, the feedback that we're receiving is so lovely and we're able to see just how much fun you're all still having at home, so thank you! We've had nature modelling, crafting, bird boxes, bug hotels, scavenger hunts....the list is endless!! Let's have a look at what you've all been up to....

Half Term Holiday camp at Up Lyme

Posted on February 26th 2020

Mr Holt and Miss Harrison were back for more fun this half term! With plenty of activities to keep the children occupied; we whooshed through the time! We hunted for bugs, hammered Calico, painted plant pots, climbed hills, swung on a tree swing and explored a forest..... and of course, toasted Marshmallows on the fire!! And this is only a small selection of the activities we did!! The weather held off until we went home but we still got covered in mud and had a great time! Look out for our Easter camp dates being released soon...

We've been celebrating seasonal change over the holidays and into the new year. This month's blog is from leader Emily. The children have definitely noticed the differences in the weather and the landscapes around them. We've both enjoyed and hated the rain; along with the mud that it's brought recently! However- one thing is obvious. Our children are loving Forest School! Seeing the expressions on their faces and hearing the discussions that they are having together are priceless. Knowing that everyone is able to access something from the sessions is hugely rewarding to us and their teaching staff too. We know that there are some who find huge challenge in a different routine and timetable and some that are unfamiliar with regular outdoor activity. Communication and observation skills are areas that have rocketed within the Dorset schools over the season! We've seen the children exploring their sites in so many different ways. Realising that a muddy slope can also be harvested for building a natural land mass- realising that others before have used land for some many different purposes and making those critical links. Being outside is opening up greater possibilities and opportunities to our learners- and they don't even realise they're learning! Embracing the elements and considering surroundings motivate them and intrigue them. I'm loving learning alongside them and facilitating some fascinating developments in the process. Happy New Year everyone!
