The children took part in a Scavenger Hunt at Forest School today. We learnt about different everyday plants, insects and fauna that are in our beautiful outdoor area. The children worked together or independently using their sheet and crayon.

Today's lesson was that there are amazing things to see in nature if only you stop and look!

Scavenger hunts are great family activities to do at home 🙂 we would love to see what you can find over the weekend and share it on Parent Zone.

This week Shining Stars have really enjoyed the glorious weather. They have spent lots of time at Forest School and outside.

At Forest School, the children have made caterpillar pictures by threading string through leaves, which used lots of concentration and fine motor skills. We glued these onto paper to preserve their work.

Outside in Shining Stars, the children worked together creating a pirate ship out of crates, wood and other materials that they could use.

They have also made troll faces for graduation week 😀



We are open to all children. We follow COVID-19 secure guidelines for our setting.

We currently have new places available please contact us for an information pack.
