Forest school – Spring Term

Throughout the Spring term, the children in Reception have been exploring the outdoor area at Corrie. They have been particularly interested in the wildlife that surrounds us. They have used binoculars to investigate which different birds live in the trees on our school grounds and where they build their nests and the materials that they used. They have also then explored different insects that birds eat such as worms. The children learnt that if they stomp on wet ground then this encourages worms to come up to the surface.

Today we had fun trying to Balance on the Slackline at Forest school .To promote learning to balance in young children, it is important to provide them with opportunities for active play and exploration. This can include activities such as running, jumping, climbing, and playing on playground equipment. Providing a safe and supportive environment for these activities can help children build confidence and develop their balance skills over time. It is also important to be patient and encouraging, as children may need time and practice to master these skills. The snapshots and mini clips show the Reception class having fun learning a new skill that enables them to improve their balance control and overall physical coordination.
