Nursery Day

After Breakfast at the nursery the children jump on the bus in their waterproofs and high-viz jackets or sun hats and creams (depending on the weather) The fun starts straight away with songs and rhymes and games of eye-spy.

We arrive at The Quex Park Estate and all gather around the fire circle at The Manor House Forest woodland site. We talk about what the children would like to do today (we’ve already got a few ideas up our sleeve!!!!)

The children split in to smaller groups based on they’re chosen morning activity, and each group has a Forest School leader. The first group is looking for evidence of Fairy Activity and will start to help the fairies make their furniture. Another group are getting really messy weighing and measuring mud in the mud kitchen, Whilst the others are rocketing down the zip wire!

Snack time soon comes around and the children eat healthy snack and drinks around the fire, then back off to play!

One group are using treasurer maps to find the gold coins that have been left behind by the messy pirates Another group are making
whistles from elder wood. The last group is making a den they can hide in.

Lunch is a mixture of lots of choices, some of which is cooked over the campfire. At this point children are learning the rules of how to be safe around a campfire.

The group is split in to two teams and friendly competitive games take place. Games such as hide and seek, capture the flag or treasure hunts and scavenger hunts. The children will take a trip to the farm to see the pigs, goats, chickens and ducks and have their afternoon snacks and drinks.

The whole time there the children are exploring the woodland and everything within it.

They’re finding where the squirrels sleep, looking at birds nest and eggs, inspecting the mini beasts and bugs on the woodland floor and getting a wonderful understand of nature and how to respect the environment. 

The day rounds off with the children sitting around the fire circle and reflecting on the activities of the day. 

Then its back on the bus with songs rhymes and stories to tell with very tired but content children
