"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Welly Wednesday

On a Wednesday, we go to our Forest School area and explore the great outdoors. 

We put on our overalls, coats and wellies so our clothes can stay nice and clean. The children like to run around Forest School, collect sticks, find leaves, go on bug hunts and play hide and seek in the trees. We also have a swing that the children love to play on.


These sessions ensure that the children get the opportunity to experience the outdoors, seeing wildlife and taking in the fresh air; this is very important for them to experience.


Please have a look at these photos to see all the different things your children have been doing on Welly Wednesday.
