Forest School at Pensford Field.
Every week our pre-school and blue room children attend our local forest school at Pensford Fields.
We believe that forest school offers excellent opportunities for both learning and playing and gives children the chance to explore the natural environment around them.
Children will attend forest school in most weathers (not extreme weather) enabling them to learn about the different seasons and different life cycles of trees, flowers and local wildlife. The children will undertake a range of activities such as;
Outdoor arts and crafts
Woodland play and exploration.
All activities are linked to the EYFS
Forest School helps children to build their self esteem, improve both social skills and peer relationships and helps children to understand and appreciate the environment around them.
The children at Montys really enjoy learning and playing at forest school
here is what a few of our children have said
"I enjoy going to forest school to watch the ants" EW
"I really enjoy making stuff out of wood" AS
" I like watching the tadpoles in the pond" BD
Montys Nursery and Pre-School have also achieved the Green Tree Schools Silver Award with the Woodland Trust.
