We had to have some tree work done to our site last term, losing 4 trees which have now become seats, balance beams, eco-piles and bug hotels! It's looking amazing. Our sessions have begun again, for our 3 and 4-year-olds, visiting the site on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
If you're one of our parents - we will be offering you the chance to join us at forest school in the Spring and Summer terms. More information to follow soon.
